These are two different things.

On the one hand there is the container encoding. It defines with which 
encoding textfiles are read, e.g. properties files. It's about servlet 
container <=> file system.

On the other hand there is the form encoding. It defines with which 
encoding requests are read. It's about servlet container <=> clients.

I hope it's correct so.
