I wrote <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8851-1" ?> in web.xml and tried to compile but i got Http 404 error saying the requested resource is not available.Then i changed it to <?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?> and then compiled.
It worked perfectly.Can anyone please tell me how that encoding attribute affects the application

The problem came up before: see this set of messages.

When I searched for ISO-8851-1 it led to a page having to do with Butter standards so I think wherever you read 8851 instead of 8859 was a misprint.
