I have a shapefile with french accent and needs to be published in geoserver 2.11.2. I have my geoserver in tomcat 8.5 and am using Ubuntu 14.04. The french accents are showing fine in get feature info but the issue is only when saving those characters in SLD, the french accents gets changed to junk characters.I have set my encoding as UTF-8 in SLD
But when i see the encoding of the file after saving by command
file --mime-encoding it is in us-ascii instead of UTF-8.
