Subject AW: ANT: charsets in replace-task
Date Thu, 08 May 2008 14:05:53 GMT

I did this. But the main problem is not showing the file, because when I open the file through
the explorer the content is shown.

The main problem ist, that the special characters are replaced by some other charcters.  

For example: 

Original characters: ZàèìòùÀÈÌÒÙáéíóúýÁÉÍÓÚÝâêîôûÂÊÎÔÛãñõÃÑÕäëïöüÿÄËÏÖÜŸçÇåÅðÐøØ\

After the replacement: èìòùÀÈÌÒÙáéíóúý�É�ÓÚ�âêîôûÂÊÎÔÛãñõÃÑÕäëïöüÿÄË�ÖÜŸçÇåÅð�øØ

May be you have tell Eclipse to use UTF-8 encoding when showing the file in which ANT has
replaced ?
