character corruption in french and german languages
posted 5 years ago
We're internationalizing our application and are facing character corruption issues. Our application uses sturts 2, db2. The browser defaults to ISO-8859-1 encoding, switching the encoding using browser to UTF-8 solves the problem partially as the characters that originally looked good get corrupted.
ISO encoding : glycémiques
UTF-8 encoding: glyc�miques
Things we tried:
1) add <meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8" /> tag to every jsp with the meta tag being the first element inside head
