Default distorted result while calling a html file

Hi All,

I am using <jsp:include /> to include a .htm file which has few hyphens ( - ) and quotes( ' ) . If I run the html directly in the browser I can see those hyphens or quotes properly. But when I call the JSP which is deployed on tomcat 5 server, I am getting question marks ( ? ) in place of the original characters ( - or ' ).

Here is the code snippet:
         String finalPath = "service map/cust details.htm";
<jsp:include page="<%=finalPath%>"/>

Here the HTM is in a folder 'service map' that lies in same folder of the JSP.
Then I tried to use URLEncoder like below
         String finalPath = URLEncoder.encode("service map/cust details.htm");
<jsp:include page="<%=finalPath%>"/>

In first case I am getting the htm include in the JSP but hyphens replaced with question marks ? and second case gives blank page in place of the htm.

Please suggest!

try using URLEncoder.encode("page.htm", "UTF-8")

encode(String s)
          Deprecated. The resulting string may vary depending on the platform's default encoding. Instead, use the encode(String,String) method to specify the encoding.


Once you start a working on something,
dont be afraid of failure and dont abandon it.
People who work sincerely are the happiest.
