Hello all,


My problem relates to text encoding. We recently upgraded from DSpace 1.8 to 3.1, and this upgrade broke many of our existing HTML bitstreams, that are UTF-8 encoded. Here is a sample:




This article looked correct in the old version, and the new version garbles the output by forcing ISO-8859. Note that only the bitstreams look incorrect: the metadata pages look just fine, so UTF-8 encoding is working everywhere except within the bitstreams.


I’ve been looking  at this for several days now without a solution; does anyone have any tips?
