I want to know how we can encode and decode different characters in jsp.
In my jsp file spaces are getting replaced with ÃÂ characters, i need to avoid that characters to be replaced for spaces.
I need some help on encoding and decoding different characters in jsp file.
Well, that has nothing to do with a textarea or HTML-encoding.
I'd show how you are specifying the encoding in the pages so someone familiar with character set encoding issues can hekp you, and I'd change the topic title to exclude the textarea mention, which is just a red herring.
