Thank you. ps. I already have "<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-874">" in my code.
The browser picks up the encoding of the response object. Therefore, you need to set the encoding on the response before it is sent to the client. For example, response.setContentType("text/html;charset=TIS620");
