Hi,
   I am trying to read an html file which is in French from buffer reader and I am getting java.lang.Exception: sun.io.MalformedInputException. I am attaching the html file and java code which reads the file. Please let me know what is going wrong here.

THank you

Below is the HTML code
<!DOCTYPE html SYSTEM  "xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>Council Template</title>
</head>
<body>
<h2></h2>
<h2></h2>
<h2></h2>
<h2></h2>
<h2>RÈGLEMENTS</h2>
<h2></h2>
<h2></h2>
<h2></h2>
<h2></h2>
<h1>CHEVALIERS DE COLOMB</h1>
<h2></h2>
<h2></h2>
<br/>

<br />
</body>
</html>


and java code is

InputStream ins = PdfUtil.class.getResourceAsStream(htmlFile);

            

            Reader in = new InputStreamReader(ins, "UTF-8");
            BufferedReader br = new BufferedReader(in);
            String linetext = br.readLine();
            while (linetext != null) {
                  // Convert Line Code
                  if (linetext.indexOf("<%") > 0) {
                        if (!isLoop) {
                              isLoop = true;
                              forLoop = new ForLoop(linetext);
                              linetext = null;
                        } else {
                              linetext = forLoop.generateLoop().toString();
                              isLoop = false;
                        }
                  }
                  if (isLoop)
                        forLoop.add(linetext);
                  else
                        newHtmlFile.append(linetext);
                  linetext = br.readLine();
            }
            br.close();


I am getting below exception at br.readLine()

instead of
Reader in = new InputStreamReader(ins, "UTF-8");
try with:
Reader in = new InputStreamReader(ins);

It's probably not UTF-8. You need to read it with the same encoding as was used to write it.

what do you get instead of È ?

what about this:
Reader in = new InputStreamReader(ins, Charset.forName("ISO-8859-1"));

how do you get this file? if it is with http request, then the charset is presented in the header.
