    German characters in a FacesMessage under Mac OS X

    Torsten Fink Newbie


      I have problems using German characters in a Faces message, such as:

      facesMessages.add("Bitte wählen Sie ...");

      The foreign characters are wrongly displayed in the web application. This only happens under Mac OS X. My colleagues with their Windows notebooks seem to have no problems.

      I tried UTF-8 and ISO-8859-1 as encoding for the Java file. I also changed the encoding of the JBoss server with "-Dfile.encoding=UTF-8".

      It would be nice if I could use "ü" in the message but Seam is too smart and quotes the "&" and the ";".

      BTW, I use Seam 2.0.0 CR1.

      Any hints would be appreciated....
