Subject Re: o Tomcat alter the page encoding for JSP file created via Netbeans 7.01
Date Sat, 05 Nov 2011 20:52:55 GMT
Hi Kiran

There is nothing wrong with your JSP. I dropped it into Tomcat 7.0.16 as 
/webapps/ROOT/test.jsp and it showed up correctly as 

It sounds like the browser is not seeing the CSS. If you don't already have 
the following installed, I suggest you try:

  Firefox - latest version
  HTML validator plugin
  Web tools plugin
  Firebug plugin

(I'm sure others will add to this list). HTML validator will tell you if 
there are HTML errors (There are none). Firebug will tell you what styles 
are affecting an element, and allow you to switch them on and off. Web tools 
has many useful functions.

I can't comment on NetBeans. I have always been an Eclipse user. I nearly 
always run Tomcat from inside Eclipse (which allows easy debugging of your 
Java code) and have never had this kind of issue. I have tried DW, but I've 
never come to grips with it.
