Hi ,
 
Here is a small jsp code which I used for proof of concept for a multi
lingual project.
 
The interesting observation is that even if I put ISO-8859-1 as charset
in the meta tag it works for all languages. I tested it for Japanese,
Korean, Arabic and French (using IME on Windows 2000).
 
As far as I know ISO-8859-1 is supposed to cover only western european
languages. I'm suprised to find that it even supports the Asian
languages.
 
Can anyone please explain me how can it support the Asian language ?
 
Regards,
Sourav
