"IE Sucks" Series continued – #2

IE Ajax problem “Could not complete operation c00ce56e”.
This error appears in the stupid IE when you don't set your server response character encoding to “UTF-8”.
This ugly behavior is M$ IE copyrighted, I really didn't find in any other modern browsers like (FF, Opera).

To solve this problem :
Set your Servlet or JSP response type to UTF-8 as follows:

response.setCharacterEncoding("UTF-8");
