#3 means changing the examples webapp to accept UTF-8 input (shouldn't be a big
deal, as #1 and #2 provide that, as mentioned) and to set the <%@page
pageEncoding="UTF-8" @> in order to set the output encoding.

#4 means that we won't bother re-encoding all of the JSP files as UTF-8 because
a) such a change would be surprising to users and b) it is not necessary as
those pages are probably all using pure ASCII at this point anyway
