I have several HTML pages(NOT JSP page).
In the content of these pages is Chinese.
I can view the Chinese content when these pages store on my PC .
After that, I upload all these pages to my tomcat server.
Then,I cannot view the chinese content of my pages.
Therefore, I added the following the statement in each pages.

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=big5">

However, it does not anything.
So,Would you mind telling me how can I fix the problem?

In fact, I don't want to rename these *.html  files to *.jsp files.

thank you

I think that doesn't my browser problem.
It is because, all my JSP page also have this meta tags, however, it does not display chinese correctly.
Luckly,I can solve this problem by adding the following statement to each jsp page:

 <%@page contentType="text/html;charset=big5"%>

Also, the tomcat version also is not the same.
My development server(WINXP) tomcat version is 4.1.29 , and my demo server(RedLinux 9.0) tomcat version 4.1.30.

Did you tried:
<%
   response.setContentType( "text/html;charset=big5");
% > 
in your jsp?

you may try adding this to the html headers:

<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-language" CONTENT="zh">

It appears you really need to configure the webserver to return a content type of text/html;charset=big5 for html files. It appears that netscape is the only browser that honors <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=big5">

alternatively you can try
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-language" CONTENT="zh-TW">
 as the language as well.

I found the solution.
My demo server environment is that,the tomcat server is integrate with apache.
It works when I changed the default language setting of apache.
By the way, I thank for all of you effort.
