Subject ANT: charsets in replace-task
Date Thu, 08 May 2008 13:46:08 GMT

Hello everybody, 

I have a problem with charsets, by using the "replace-task" of Ant in the
Eclipse IDE.
After ant relaces a token  (the value of the token comes from a
".properties-file") in an xml-file, where the charset "UTF-8" is used (<?xml
version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>), some special characters (such as:
 are not
represented correctly and Eclipse is not able to show the content of this
file after the replacement.
I have already changed the charset of all concerning files to "UTF-8", but
it still doesn't work.

Is there a solution for this problem? maybe a way to tell the replace-task
of ant to use the UTF-8 charset.  

Thank you,

Best Regards,
