Special Characters

  • Hi all,

    i have some problems with ajax:displayTag, if the render page contains special characters (áéí...). I do not see the values correctly. My page is encoded with UTF-8.

    My application is with Struts 2, Ajaxtags 1.5 and DisplayTag 1.2.


    • The problem is when parse de html source to xml. The source code contains special characters(áéíóú...) and generate code is not correct.    
      This occurs when the attribute titleKey of display:column tag are present. If instead of using the attribute titleKey use the title attribute of the special characters are displayed correctly.

      Any solution?

      this sounds like an wrong encoding (are your jsp's all in UTF-8)
      is the client correct?
      server in UTF-8 (tomcat use default(file)-encoding=utf8?)

  • This is because you use messages from .properties file - .properties are officially (see java.util.Properties javadoc) read as ASCII (ISO-8859-1).
