      Description

      Some documents output by the HTML pretty text writer (org.apache.ctakes.core.cc.pretty.html.HtmlTextWriter) show up in Firefox 59.0.3 with the A-with-circumflex character showing up where there should be a &nbsp, as described in the StackOverflow post below (in an unrelated context):

      This seems to be because the writer implicitly uses UTF-8 but does not specify an encoding in the HTML file. Firefox defaults to Western rather than UTF-8 and so displays characters incorrectly.

      This could be solved by adding a META tag to the HTML documents that are written and specifying UTF-8 encoding.
