Hi, I have to use central european characters with tomcat. I know a site that does that (www.ingasigurari.ro). They declare in the <head> part of the html as content type: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-2"> I try the same thing in my site but it does not work until I change the encoding from my browser. Can this be done by tomcat? Can I tell tomcat what encoding to have? I'm using central european characters, but I'm sure it's the same thing with cyrillic etc. Thanks.
