Subject Character encoding and euro currency symbol
Date Wed, 12 Jun 2002 16:05:38 GMT

The problem is the euro currency symbol entered in a textfield gets converted
to &#8364; when it arrives on the server.

How can we stop this from happening?

The jsp page has the contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" directive and the
appropriate meta tag.

I've tried using the filter from the tomcat archive to set the character
encoding on the request but then all the special characters get dumped!

I'm using tomcat 4.0.1

Greetings, Philippe.
