    Default Error while parsing html page in java on linux

    I am parsing HTML page using some html parsing utility. i am using cobra.jar and js.jar for that.

    There are some unreadable special charactor like ' � ' but when I compiled my program in windows it compile properly and run fine.

    But when i compiled it in linux it gives me followig Warning:
    unmappable character for encoding UTF8
    String stateZipArray[] = stateZip.trim().split(" � ");

    and then while accessing elements from stateZipArray array it gives ArrayIndexBounds exception.

    In InputStreamReader class i am using 'ISO-8859-1' as a charsetname.

    Can any one please tell me what is problem and how can i resolve it?

    Thanks in advance.

    My guess is that your linux machine has an English language locale as it's default.

    There are two ways to set the locale manually, if that's the problem. See this article on the subject:
