Character encoding issue in V13

Hi All,

When we are trying to encode characters via JS file, we are getting funky characters instead of expected characters. Could you please help us in resolving the issue ?

example : special character “*” is replaced with “?” in the webpages.

please note we have added below filter to the site/web.xml in our source code.


If you mean a js resource through webfiles, then just make sure the js file content is saved in UTF-8 encoding, not in something else.

In bloomreach V13, we are getting the charset value as “ISO-8859-1” in our local environment. refer below snapshots

But in version 12 we can see “UTF-8”.


Could you please suggest ?


Could you give a URL path example which responds with “Content-Type: text/html;charset=ISO-8859-1”?
I just want to know whether it is a normal hst page request or a binary asset or webfile resource.



P.S. By the way, the CharacterEncodingFilter won’t affect the response encoding, but it’s only for setting the request encoding.
