Sorry for bothering you again, but I'm not completely with you... Though there 
is no standard for the URI encodings, there is a servlet specification (see 
2.4pfd3, chapter SRV.4.9).

Also, there are many cases when developer is not the one who will impose POST 
requests to his application - he is forced to get parameters from URI. So, this 
method SHOULD definitely work as before...

I have prepared a 'clean' test file 'bug.jsp' which can be dropped either in 
Tomcat 5.0.9 or 5.0.14 to see the difference between these two points of 
developmnent (this file contains some russian text in Cp1251 as a sample). 
5.0.9 works fine whereas 5.0.14 does not.

<%@ page 
  pageEncoding="Cp1251" 
  language="java"
  contentType="text/html; charset=utf-8"
%>    
<html>
<head>
  <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
</head>
<body>

<%
  request.setCharacterEncoding("utf-8"); 
  String test = request.getParameter("test");
  if (test != null) {
    out.write("the length of the test value after decoding: " + test.length());
  }
  out.write("<br>");
  out.write("the value of the test parameter: " + test);
  out.write("<br>");
%>

<form action="bug.jsp" method="get">
  <input type="text" name="test" value="ั‚ะตัั‚">
  <input type="submit" value="test this russian text (4 characters)!">
</form>

</body>
</html>

What do you think?
