Subject RE: Encoding Problem
Date Tue, 03 May 2005 10:27:01 GMT
Hi Daniel,
          Many Thanks. I did try ISO-8859-7 but it still wont work. I
get junk characters on the output stream. 

I used Velocity.getTemplate("<template file name>", "ISO-8859-7");

The template file is in ISO-8859-7 encoding. It still wont work.

ISO-8859-7 (or maybe cp1253 if you are writing an MS Windows-only app).
UTF-8 should work as well, just then you need a text editor that knows
UTF-8 (for the editing of the templates), which can be a problem

Note that there are two technically separated encodings playing here:
the encoding of the template files, and the encoding of the output, if
you are using an OutputStream at the end. Maybe use ISO-8859-7 for both,
or UTF-8 for the last.
