<title>Defining HTML file preferences</title>
<body id="tjprefs"><a name="tjprefs"><!-- --></a>
<h1 class="topictitle1">Defining HTML file preferences</h1>
<div class="section"> <p> To define general
HTML file preferences, complete the following steps:</p>
<li class="stepexpand"><span>From the <span class="uicontrol">Window</span> menu, select <span class="uicontrol">Preferences</span>.</span>
<li class="stepexpand"><span>In the Preferences window, select <span class="menucascade"><span class="uicontrol">Web and
XML</span> &gt; <span class="uicontrol">HTML Files</span></span>.</span></li>
<li class="stepexpand"><span>Specify the following settings related to saving an HTML source
page. The defaults are recommended and should only be modified when there
is a specific reason to do so. </span> <dl>
<dt class="dlterm">Line delimiter</dt>
<dd>Specify the appropriate EOL character for your environment. The default
is <span class="uicontrol">No translation</span>.</dd>
<dt class="dlterm">Add this suffix</dt>
<dd>Specify a default suffix for files that you save. The default is <kbd class="userinput">html</kbd>.</dd>
<dt class="dlterm">Encoding, IANA, (Use workbench default)</dt>
<dd>Specify the default encoding (code page) for files that you create. The
default is the Workbench's encoding preference. </dd>
<dt class="dlterm">Insert DOCTYPE declaration</dt>
<dd>Optionally, you can automatically add a DOCTYPE declaration to HTML files.
The default DOCTYPE is determined when you create an HTML file or a JSP file
using a wizard. If you add the DOCTYPE declaration, you should include at
least a Public ID specification, and, optionally, a System ID.</dd>
<dt class="dlterm">Insert GENERATOR with META tag</dt>
<dd>Optionally, select the check box to specify GENERATOR in a META tag in
the HTML file header.</dd>
<dt class="dlterm">Loading files</dt>
<dd>Specify the default encoding (code page) for files that you open. The
default is the Workbench's encoding preference. Deselect the <span class="uicontrol">Use
workbench default</span> check box to select another encoding. <div class="note"><span class="notetitle">Note:</span> Encoding
detection (when loading files) is performed in the following order: <ul>
<li>Locate the encoding name embedded in the document.</li>
<li>When no encoding is embedded in the document, an automatic encoding detector
attempts to determine encoding used in the document.</li>
<li>If the encoding still cannot be determined, the encoding defined in the <span class="uicontrol">Encoding</span> field
is used.</li>
<li class="stepexpand"><span>Click <span class="uicontrol">Apply</span> then <span class="uicontrol">OK</span> to
save your changes.</span></li>
