UTF-8 encdoing

Is it possible to have UTF-8 encoding in each page instead of the default ISO-8859-1?

    Hello,
    The web application itself does not explicitly encode pages, in order to implement this you will need to change your application server's configuration. Some details on doing this for tomcat are available here: http://wiki.apache.org/tomcat/Tomcat/UTF-8
    I believe you will also need to modify the way the web application decodes form inputs, and possibly strings the application gets in other ways such as validation criteria found in CRF template files.
    Thanks,
    Jaron

    Why would you ?
    If you have any spanish, french, german ... character,
    it will not be displayed/transmitted correctly.
