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
Can anyone please explain me how can it support the Asian language ?
The jsp file name is i18na.jsp
<%@ page import="java.util.*"%>
<%@ page import="java.io.*"%>
    String ucStr = request.getParameter("jap");
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">
<BODY topmargin="0" marginheight="0" leftmargin="0" marginwidth="0">
String  = <%= ucStr%>
<FORM name="frmText"
<TABLE  border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="5" width="200">
                <TD><INPUT TYPE="text" NAME="jap" SIZE="30"
                <TD><INPUT TYPE="submit" NAME="Submit"
