Encoding - UTF-8 cannot display Extended ASCII Character ?
posted 4 years ago
I have 2 web application and found one funny case which is in Admin the character display fine but it displays blank/question_mark for the character in User Web.
1 - Admin
2 - User Web
In Admin application, in web.xml encoding is iso-8859-1. and all the JSPs i put this tag:
In UserWeb app, in web.xml encoding is utf-8 and all the JSPs i put this tag:
So the case is, I have this character in DB --> ' (which is chr(146) - extended ascii character)
In admin it retrieve from DB and display the character correctly as in --> '
but it doesn't display correctly in UserWeb.
DB character set is US7ASCII
Is above encoding part is the cause of the issue ?
If so, why UTF-8 character encoding cannot somehow accept extended ascii character like chr(146) ?
Anyone got idea ?
I've been stuck for the whole day ...
