Subject Re: Strante tomcat warning - WARNING: Parameters: Character decoding failed. Parameter skipped.

This is as far as I got. Why would the browser be encoding its requests 
in anything other than base64. I had just wondered if this was a common 
problem with a somewhat simple solution. I don't really have time to go 
digging around in TCP dumps at the moment so I guess the error will have 
to live on for the time being, thanks for your feedback.

Best Regards,
