I am using mysql 4.1.15, tomcat5 and struts 1.2.8 and have the following problem:
-the jsp pages are all coded utf8 and declared so via page tag.
-the browser shows that display is utf8 and data is displayed correctly (german umlauts).
-now, then I submit a form these strings are sent to the server as utf8, but [insert guilty app here] encodes them again as utf8, resulting in a string that looks good if I convert it from utf8 to iso8859-1.
"Müller" is encoded as "MÃ¼ller" (which looks like if it is displayed with browser setting = iso8859-1, but it is utf8)
Any suggestions to solve this problem?
