[opencms-dev] Special Characters in navText

Hi and thanks for the quick response.

The ¿¿¿¿ are seen both on the Properties and on the rendered Navigation. 
However, the same characters work when simply put inside of the page.
The page itself is properly encoded and as I mentioned can display all 
of the characters fine.

The only problem seems to come from the Properties. Pasting the 
characters into the Properties window works and they are displayed 
correctly. Once saved however they show up wrong.

I don't know about the tomcat configurations though. I am only 
developing a template and the only exposure to the tomcat server comes 
from a simple restart script I have to use once in a while.
