Hi All !
I have a problem
We have an application that uses JBoss Portal ver.2.4.
We need to enter text via a form and then show this text on the page.
The problem is that we need users to input characters in French, German etc. - not only standard Latin symbols.
So... when we submit the form via web 2.0 (ajax, prototype library) - everything works OK.
The special western european characters are sent to the server correctly and are shown correctly on the page.
BUT! When we send the form via a simple submit button with complete page reloading, the special characters are lost...
the following approaches has been tried but they don't work :
1. <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>
2. <% response.setHeader("Content-Type", "text/html;charset=UTF-8"); %>
3. accept-charset="UTF-8" on the form
Can anyone help me solve this problem?
How to deal with simple web1.0 forms?
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
