Hi Matthias,

thanks for your help.

That's an option.  But when dealing with protocols I prefer to have an
authoritive statement from the protocol authoritives to be on the safe
side ;-).

That effectively means that only utf-8 is supported and esp. that
clients only need to support utf-8.  That would be good news.  BTW
when looking at the server code I really doubt that anything else than
utf-8 will really work.

Thanks again,


PS.:  I'm really looking forward to when your poll servlet will work
again because that's the only chance for poor me to connect to jabber
from work :-).  Thanks for this work (and bandwidth).
