Invalid Encoding Name in Tomcat 6

Here's an error message you may come across when deploying Globus to Tomcat 6. This error message happens when Tomcat is started.

SEVERE: Parse Fatal Error at line 1 column 40: Invalid encoding name "cp1252".org.xml.sax.SAXParseException: Invalid encoding name "cp1252".

Use the following procedure to correct the error:

1. Change directory to %CATALINA_HOME%\conf
2. Open tomcat-users.xml in a text editor
3. Look at the first line of the file and change encoding='cp1252' to encoding='utf-8'
4. Save the file and restart Tomcat
