Hi All,

I'm new to Jforum.
I have installed Jforum 2.1.8 version and integrated within my website.
But I have one doubt. I would really appreciate if someone could look into it.

I have observed that all the web responses in my forum which contains HTML content specifies charset = UTF-8 .
And default charset used by the servlet and jsp container is charset = ISO8859-1

Why jsp have charset = ISO8859-1 ? Why they have different charset?

What will be the impact of changing charsets of jsps or html pages . so, that all have same charsets.?
Is there any reason of having different charset ?

 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
