I am a real novice in JSP. But I have to find out one fix about the following issue. The encoding of the page in @page directive is ISO-8859-1.Now when I give '#' in the textarea it is not accepting. Though I have given very less information this query may not make sense but this is the information I have and no idea why it is notb taking '#'.I also tried with '$' without any problem. Do i need to give any escape sequence ?
