Local fix

Problem summary

  • During page generation it is possible that the content of the
    page will be converted from one encoding to another.  At times,
    this conversion can result in characters that are invalid in
    the encoding to which the content was converted.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The fix is to detect converted characters which are invalid in
    the page's intended encoding, and remove them during the page
    generation process.
    The fix for this APAR is included in Rational Application
    Developer v8.5.5.
