I'm sorry, I'm new to this mailing list, and I didn't find any post in the 
archive about this subject....or I don't know how to search.

I've got a problem since I upgraded from debian potato to debian woody.
the following jsp file doesn't display the same thing on the different 
debian distro.
it just extract data from a mysql database.

<%@ page import="java.sql.*" %>
String connectionURL = 
Connection connection = null;
Statement statement = null;
ResultSet rs = null;

     <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
hé hé hé

connection = DriverManager.getConnection(connectionURL, "", "");
statement = connection.createStatement();
rs = statement.executeQuery("SELECT * FROM xxxxxxx");

while ( {



this jsp displays, on the potato box :
hé hé hé
Revue d'histoire consacrée à la période de la Révolution française et de 

the same jsp displays, on the woody box :
hé hé hé
Revue d'histoire consacr?e ? la p?riode de la R?volution fran?aise et de 

as you can see, french special characters are now "?" when they are 
extracted from the mysql DB.
but if I check the mysql manually or with phpmyadmin, french character are 
still there !!!!!

I'm using mysql-3.23.51 and jakarta-tomcat-4.0.4 on both systems
same config files !

if anybody has a clue .....
thanks a lot
