    European characters

    leg Makhniy Newbie

      Hi All !

      I have a problem

      We have an application that uses JBoss Portal ver.2.4.
      We need to enter text via a form and then show this text on the page.
      The problem is that we need users to input characters in French, German etc. - not only standard Latin symbols.
      So... when we submit the form via web 2.0 (ajax, prototype library) - everything works OK.
      The special western european characters are sent to the server correctly and are shown correctly on the page.
      BUT! When we send the form via a simple submit button with complete page reloading, the special characters are lost...

      the following approaches has been tried but they don't work :
      1. <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"/>
      2. <% response.setHeader("Content-Type", "text/html;charset=UTF-8"); %>
      3. accept-charset="UTF-8" on the form

      Can anyone help me solve this problem?
      How to deal with simple web1.0 forms?
      Any help is appreciated.
      Thanks in advance.
