ChangedCharSetException From Swing Parser

Hi,
I am trying to parse through the HTML tags using the swing HTML parser.  The problem is that a ChangedCharSetException is thrown when I try to read from certain html files.  I am not quite sure how to go around this.  Thanks for any comments.


HTMLEditorKit.ParserCallback callback = new HTMLEditorKit.ParserCallback(){
    public void handleStartTag(HTML.Tag tag, MutableAttributeSet aSet, int pos){
        <some code>
    }
    public void handleSimpleTag(HTML.Tag tag, MutableAttributeSet aSet, int pos){
        <some code>
    }
};

Reader in = new FileReader(file);
new ParserDelegator().parse(in, callback, false);

htmlDoc.putProperties("IgnoreCharacterSet",boolean(true));
HTMLEditorKit class cannot interpret <meta> tags as HTML content ..

think you meant:
doc.putProperty("IgnoreCharsetDirective", new Boolean(true));

But what is the htmlDoc you are calling?

i was referring to the default document ...

i guess a simpler way to do it would be to specify in parse() itself ... change last param to true
new ParserDelegator().parse(in, callback, true);

No problem.

EditorKit kit = new HTMLEditorKit();
Document doc = kit.createDefaultDocument();
doc.putProperty("IgnoreCharsetDirective", new Boolean(true));

kit.read(reader, doc, true);


I actually implemented this by changing the last param to true as bkfirebird pointed out since that was easier: new ParserDelegator().parse(in, callback, true);
