URIEncoding doesn't affect POSTed data, only GET parameters.

Re' POST, The Servlet Spec (2.4 version quoted here) sez:

SRV.4.9 Request data encoding
   Currently, many browsers do not send a char encoding qualifier
   with the Content-Type header, leaving open the determination of
   the character encoding for reading HTTP requests. The default
   encoding of a request the container uses to create the request
   reader and parse POST data must be “ISO-8859-1” if none has been
   specified by the client request.

There's more, of course :-)
