Are there any reason I should be concerned about a jsp file that contains a content type definition meta tag? Kind of a strange question, I know.

As an example, say I write a jsp and save the source file on my PC in one encoding. I then upload the JSP to a server.

Is it possible that the server may actually send the response to the client encoded differently than the source file is? If so, does pose any risks? Thanks.
