<h1 class="topictitle1">File Encoding</h1>
<div><p />
<p> The character encoding in XML, (X)HTML files, and JSP files can be specified
and invoked in many different ways; however, we recommend that you specify
the encoding in each one of your source files, for that is where many XML,
HTML, JSP editors expect to find the encoding.</p>
<div class="p">For example, for JSP files, you might use the pageEncoding attribute and/or
the contentType attribute in the page directive, as shown in the following
example:<pre>&lt;%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1"
<div class="p">For XML files, you might use the encoding pseudo-attribute in the xml declaration
at the start of a document or the text declaration at the start of an entity,
as in the following example: <pre>&lt;?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?&gt;</pre>
<div class="p">For (X)HTML files, you might use the &lt;meta&gt; tag inside the &lt;head&gt;
tags, as shown in the following example:<pre>&lt;meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html;charset=utf-8" /&gt;</pre>
