Dear all i am sending some text from server end to a javaapplet which uses j editor pane. The text contains unicode characters as well. Basically they are mathematical/greek symbols and are necessary to be sent in unicode format only since i have to supprot both ie and netscape. I have already tried setting the content type of jeditorpane to "text/html; enctype='UTF-8'". But that didn't help. Also i am setting the text in jeditor pane through setText and not by setPage or initializing through a URL. Would that effect that ?? please help its a sort of emergency.. regards and thanks in advance.. raghav..
