According to the wiki site you are referring to this should be
iso-8859-1 for the container-encoding and utf-8 for the form
encoding. But then you would need to set the serializers to utf-8 as
well. Have you checked that the page with the form contains a valid
<meta/> tag for the encoding? According to the wiki the html page
needs to have a <head/> or the serialized will not add the encoding

I would expect that you will hit the same encoding problems with other
systems as well.

Definately : yes.

using the same as the page with the form is the problem.
