I have been working on internationalizing my website.

I am able to get it to work it work by pulling the UTF-8 formatted properties from a resource bundle. The problem is that I need to manually change the browsers encoding from ISO8859-1 to UTF-8. It then displays the Japanese characters corretly.

When I add the following line to the begining of my JSP it then correctly sends the content-type of UTF-8 and the browser recognizes the file as UTF-8.

<%@ page contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" language="java" pageEncoding="UTF-8" %>

However, the data then comes out garabled (i.e. probably unencoded).

I am using Tomcat 5.5 and the JSPs are stored as UTF-8 files.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Bill
