Static HTML Text in HTML Page

This section provides a tutorial example to test how non-ASCII characters entered as static text in HTML pages are handled by the Tomcat 7 server and returned to Web browsers.

In the first test, the static text is inserted into a regular HTML file:

<html>
<!-- StaticGB2312.html
 - Copyright (c) 2012, HerongYang.com, All Rights Reserved.
-->
<body>
<p>
GB2312-binary: 쮵쏷=(0xCBB5C3F7)<br/>      
GB2312-#xHEX: &#xCBB5;&#xC3F7;<br/>
GB2312-\uHEX: \uCBB5\uC3F7<br/>
Unicode-binary: 说明=(0x8bf4660e)<br/>
Unicode-#xHEX: &#x8bf4;&#x660e;<br/>
Unicode-\uHEX: \u8bf4\u660e<br/>
Unicode-UTF8: 说明=(0xE8AFB4E6988E)<br/>
</p>
</body>
</html>

Now view StaticGB2312.html with IE, and try to change the encoding schema in the View menu. Results match my expectations except one area:

Since this is not a JSP, Tomcat will not convert it into a Java class file. I am using this test to validate that the codes are entered correctly.
