        Description



        Name: nl37777 Date: 06/23/2004

        The jar tool documentation describes the jar file manifest
        format as "inspired by RFC822 ASCII format", but fails to mention that
        the values of manifest attributes are actually encoded in UTF-8. This
        feature, important for internationalization, should be documented in
        the jar tool documentation (it is mentioned in the jar file
        specification,
        http://java.sun.com/j2se/1.5.0/docs/guide/jar/jar.html#JAR%20Manifest).
