Error description

  • Character encoding information for a given MIME part of a
    document is usually listed explicitly in the Content-Type header
    of the same MIME part via the "charset" parameter. However,
    some clients may instead choose to transport the charset
    information inside the corresponding payload itself, in which
    case the charset parameter will not be specified in the
    Content-Type header. Traveler's previous handling of this
    second, less common scenario meant that some content (most often
    extended-ascii characters) would display incorrectly on
    Traveler devices, because we would forgo the necessary recording
    and translation required for these characters to display
    correctly on devices.
    
    With this APAR, MIME content from text parts without explicit
    charset parameters should display correctly on Traveler devices.
    

Local fix

  • N/A
    

Problem summary

  • Some MIME Encoded documents may not render correctly on Mobile
    device if the charset is inline in the message.
    

Problem conclusion

  • This is an unexpected document format.  The IBM Traveler server
    has been updated to handle this correctly.
    

Temporary fix
