Hi All,
I am facing a major issue when coming to display Japanese characters in Browser. I am working on a web application which has to be internationalized to support Japanese characters.

These are the steps i followed
1. ran native2ascii on the Language property file.
2. set content type to UTF-8 in JSP
This works in weblogic but in Websphere,
The characters are garbled up in the browser.

When I dont set the content type to UTF-8 in JSP, the data is garbled up but the browser encoding is Western European. If I change the browser encoding manually to UTF-8 then it becomes all right.

Alternatively if i save the JSP file in PC UTF-8 format and dont set the content type to UTF-8 then the data is properly displayed. But we cannot do this as it causes some other UI issues in US locale.

Am i missing something here
Thanks in advance
Sekhar
