Subject RE: Form encoding problem in cocoon 2.0.4
Date Wed, 02 Jul 2003 17:26:59 GMT

I had encoding problems with accented characters too.  Put <META http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"> in your html.  iso-8859-1 is the correct one.

Subject: Form encoding problem in cocoon 2.0.4


I'm having a little problem about form encoding.
First of all, let me describe the development environment:
- Tomcat 4.1.24
- Cocoon 2.0.4
- RedHat 9

Now, the problem:
I've got a webpage, which has a form inside. There are several input 
fields, mostly of type "text". There is also a input field of type "file".
If i click on the "submit" button, i'll go other page (a xsp one), which 
displays the contents of the parameters (passed through request and 
While the values of the input which have the type "text" are correct, 
the field which has the "file" type isn't. The error occurs when i use 
accents (éèá, etc).
I'm using UTF-8 encoding on all pages.

My tries to solve the problem:
1) changed the web.xml file of cocoon 
($TOMCAT_HOME/webapps/cocoon/WEB-INF/web.xml), which i included the 
"form-encoding" parameter to UTF-8
2) on the same file, i've tried to set the "container-encoding" value to 
UTF-8 (ok, i'm almost desesperating! ;-))

My opinion:
Since the "text" type works correctly and the "file" type doesn't, i 
suspect that the "form-encoding" is not so right after all... but it's 
only my opinion, based on my cocoon's ignorance... ;-)

Critical features:
1) i just can't upgrade the cocoon engine because i've got legacy 
applications running on that... at least, i can't change right now... :-(

F1 wanted! If anyone could help me, i'd appreciate!!
