    Problem with accented letters in jsf pages with seam 2.0.0GA

    Brasil Programmer Newbie

      Hello,
      I have developped several applications with Seam 1.2.1 with Jboss 4.0.5 and recently tested Seam 2.0.0GA.
      One change I've seen is that accented letters are translated into entity name, when in the older version they were translated into entity number. For instance a small i with acute accent is translated to & i acute; before it was translated to & #237;
      The problem is that Mozilla Firefox can't display the page because the content-type sent is application/xhtml+xml and these entities are not defined. The display is correct in IE.
      I've put a meta tag in the head:

      <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />


      But it didn't change anything.

      I thought it was related to facelets, I've switched back to the same version that comes with Seam 1.2.1 but it gave the same result

      Is there a way to switch back to the old behavior or a workaround?

      Thanks in advance.
