Do the SSE editors, specifically the XML and JSP editors support multibyte
character sets? I placed some Korean and simplified Chinese characters into
the source view of the editor. I don't see the characters in the view (just
blank space), but they do show up in the outline and in the properties view.
Is this supported?

thank you

Neil,

I think that should be supported. Probably you just don't have the
necessary fonts installed or something like that...

Yes, we support what ever Java supports. (And, all VM's are a bit =

different, but, most
support several hundred).

As Ed mentioned, its likely the font. There are some heuristics to auto =
=

dection best fonts to use
deep in the bowels of JFace or SWT code, but it is not fool-proof. So, l=
et =

us know if
change the font works for you. Or, if you have no idea which font to =

select, you might compare what
your OS system uses for various parts of its UI .... or, ask again!.

Also, since you sound new at this, I'll give a few pointers.
The encoding you'd like should be specified in the file (before you save=
=

the special characters).

XML is pretty easy
<?xml version=3D"1.0" encoding=3D"EUC-KR"?>

But, for JSPs, its best to spec it everyplace you can think of, dependin=
g =

on the version of JSP you use,
it might be
<%@ page
pageEncoding=3D"EUC-KR"
language=3D"java"
contentType=3D"text/html; charset=3DEUC-KR"
%>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
<HTML>
<HEAD>
<META http-equiv=3D"Content-Type" content=3D"text/html; charset=3DEUC-KR=
">
<TITLE>some Title </TITLE>
</HEAD>
<BODY>

</BODY>
</HTML>
