Hello ranchers,

I am building a web application in Korean. Everything went smoothly while developing the app in my desktop (win xp, mysql, tomcat 5.x).

I deployed my app in a web hosting company that supports servlet/jsp when I thought I am pretty much done. I spoke too soon. I am struggling for a week to figure out a way prevent Korean letters to displayed correctly. I am not having any luck with it at all.

I have developed html docs using euc-kr charset and used the html as a jsp base. Each page contains Korean and English.

I enter a paragraph in Korean from a form I created. I would go to the mysql database to see if what I entered is in correct format. And it is in correct format. And then if I retrieved the paragraph from the database, it is all broken when displayed in my jsp.

Can anyone help?

I had a similar problem with some french characters not being displayed properly. In my case, fixing the <meta> tag worked.

At the beginning of the document, there should be a tag something like:

<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=ISO-8859-1">

Make sure the charset is set so that it will display Korean characters. Possibly ISO-2022-KR ?

Some webservers are more forgiving than others, so that might explain why you didn't encounter the problem until you ported the application to an ISP.
