Tomcat 3.1 mishandles UTF-8 encoded text above the ascii range

My servlet produces UTF-8 encoded HTML pages that 
include encoded Unicode character values in the CJK range; 
I set the HttpServletResponse.ContentType in these cases to
"text/html;charset=utf-8".  Under an early issue of 
Tomcat 3.1, the UTF-8 encoded CJK characters got submitted 
to the browser properly; IE5 with the proper fonts 
installed was able to display theses characters just fine.  
Under the newest issue of Tomcat 3.1, however, the CJK 
characters in the HTML pages are replaced with "?"s before 
they are submitted to the browser! 

For another report of the same problem, see 
Stefan van den Oord's memo to the developers list on
May 4, 2000: )
