[protege-discussion] Protege 3.4.7 :: UTF-8 HTML Export from Frames based ontology less than optimal

I have spent a little while trying to get Protege 3.4.7 to export a
multilingual frames based ontology to UTF-8 HTML. This exercise, although
it should be simple, has been problematic [understatement] and even with my
workaround remains less than optimal.

In order to get the Protege Client to actually export the UTF-8 characters
from a collaborative server based ontology I had to set the following
variable in the `' script (FreeBSD 8.2-RELEASE with


# ------------------- JVM Options ------------------- 


# ------------------- JVM Options ------------------- 

This addition resulted in the CJK and Arabic characters making it into the
HTML output. What it didn't do, unfortunately, was to update the character
set encoding of the exported HTML files:

They currently read:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1"/>

when they should read:

<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

So to my question ... How is it possible to configure Protege 3.4.7 so that
the HTML headers are appropriate for UTF-8 output?

Kind regards,
