What I meant was that Tomcat and it's running apps being Java-based, and 
Java's internal charset being Unicode, stuff like request.getParameter() 
will by default deliver Unicode, without need to go through loops.

But of course that is IF the pages sent to the browser are properly 
UTF-8 and marked as UTF-8, if the <form> tags in them are properly set 
up, if the browser does what it should do and so on.

But maybe that is also still not correct, or not enough.
What else does need to be done at the Tomcat configuration level so that 
it would handle UTF-8 requests properly, and produce UTF-8 responses 
properly ?
