I started working on a new assignment of Struts based maintenance J2EE project. I am new to Struts and having some trouble understanding the code and I seek Struts expers help here .

Basically we need to add Internationalization support to the existing Struts based code and here I am trying to show Japanese characters in the browser.

my jsp code looks like below:



What I did ?

I started creating a new file using the Notepad editor on Windows XP . The file is then saved as type "Unicode Big Endian"
Next, using the native2ascii utility from JDK 1.4 SDK, I use the following command to convert this file to an ASCII file:
native2ascii -encoding UnicodeBig CustomerResources_zh.ucd
The resulting output contains the required escape code.
I am using this file in my web project.

In my internet explorer, Tools --> Internet Options --> Languages tab, I added the language "Chinese (Hong Kong S.A.R.) [zh-HK]"

When I fire a request to my jsp, I see garbage character in my browser instead of chinese characters.
I tried to even add this line
<%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=utf-8" %>
to top of my jsp file but still no use.

Can you please clarify what I am missing here and how to add i18n support for Chinese locale to my existing Struts based code ?
