Hi guys,

I am confused now. I am trying to submit chinese input to my WebLogic app.

If I specified
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1"%>

it returns something like
&#24536; &#24535;...blah blah

but if I specified
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8"%>

it returns me something like
&#xE5; &#xBF

Well, I think that the appropriate ways is to use UTF-8 but now I am confused why ISO-8859-1 is capable to handle &#24536;. I thought that ISO-8859-1 is only for Latin language and it should not accept Chinese (unicode)?

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

there are few encoding schemes for unicode, try for all
UTF-16 works with chinese letter.

I guess it can handle Chinese too.

Thanks guys :),

marchent >> Can you explain me why my confusion above is happening?

mayankeagle >> Yeah, I think so but when I tried to *google* it, ISO only lists out English as well as Latin characters. There is no single site mentioning that ISO can handle Chinese in whatever way.
