    <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type"  > setting did not work in J

      Hi everyone,

      We are doing an EJB application which is supported Chinese language (which allowed end-user to entry chinese and retrieve it from DB and displayed on page).
      In order to displayed the chinses on jsp page, we have the following setting for HTML header in every jsp page:
      <META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=GB2312" >

      As my understand, this setting will automatically change the browser's encoding menthod to GB2312 without asking end-user to manually change the setting by they own.

      However, we found this setting did not work. the encoding setting of browser is always set to ISO and end-user need to manual change it to GB2312.

      But if we add "<%response.reset();%> in the jsp page, then it work and automatically change the browser's setting....... very strange. Unforunately, reset() menthod is also reset some parameter value in the response header which is necessary information for us.

      Does anyone have this kind of experience before? Is any setting of Jboss will override the setting for charset in every response?

      It will be appreciate for any comments for you guys. Thank you
