Error description

  • When using GatewayScript & XSLT extensions to get/set the HTTP
    header value, it does not get the correct result for Latin-1
    supplement characters, i.e. code range from 0x80 to 0xFF.
    
    The HTTP header value is encoded in ISO-8859-1 character set and
    if user use XSLT extensions, e.g. <dp:request-header/> or
    <dp:set-reponse-header/>, or GatewayScript's header-metadata
    module to manipulate the header value, the character does not be
    converted correctly for the code range from 0x80 to 0xFF.
    

Local fix

Problem summary
