The above contentType value does not include charset argument.
Thus the actual content type in HTTP response will be "text/html;
charset=ISO-8859-1",  which does not match with your HTML <meta> tag

> <html>

I'd recommend to use
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="<%=response.getContentType()%>">
so that Content-Type HTTP header and the above <META> tag always have
the same value.
