Error description

  • Emailed test suite reports from IBM Rational Integration Tester
    (RIT) cannot be read correctly when using international
    character sets.
    Characters are rendered as '?'.
    
    The test suite can be successfully displayed in the RIT Results
    Gallery
    
    STEPS TO REPRODUCE:
    
    1. Install and run RIT on a system using an international
    character set such as Korean.
    2. Create a results email HTML publisher.
    3. Configure a test suite to publish results.
    4. View the results email.
    
    EXPECTED RESULTS:
    
    The email should display the same way that Results Gallery does.
    
    ACTUAL RESULTS:
    
    Some characters are replaced with '??'.
