      Description

      copied from email in mailing list:

      I have the following in my struts.xml

      <action name="testutf8" class="TestXml">
      <result name="success" type="xslt">
      <param name="exposedValue">utf8</param>
      <param name="location">testxml.xsl</param>
      </result>
      </action>

      My testxml.xsl file looks like this:
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
      <xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
      xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform">
      <xsl:output method="xml" />
      <xsl:template match="result">
      <xsl:copy-of select="." />
      </xsl:template>
      </xsl:stylesheet>

      My TestXML.java file looks has the following
      public Class TestXml {
      private String utf8="hèllo world"; // a string with utf-8 character, getters+setters omitted here

      public String execute throws Exception

      { return "success"; }

      }

      When I request /testutf8 I get the following in the browser:
      XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
      Location: http://localhost:8080/testutf8
      Line Number 1, Column 48:<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><result>h�llo world</result>
      -----------------------------------------------^

      It seems the utf-8 character is not being handled properly. How can I make the xslt result type handle the utf-8 character correctly?

      Upon further investigation, the response type header is only "text/xml", it is missing character encoding.

      A workaround is to register a custom filter which forces utf-8 character encoding on the output, but ideally this should be handled within struts.

      Let me know if more information is needed.
