My knowledge of java and Tomcat is limited, so I may be off-base here.
But I have also has occasional issues with Tomcat and non-US character 
sets on various Windows platforms.
Just for information, what is the basic Windows language version of the 
3 Windows servers you are using ?
I mean, is for example the Windows XP system some arabic version, while 
the 2003 and 2000 servers are basic English/US-Windows ?

The reason for my question : when a Java JVM starts under Unix/Linux, it 
takes its language settings from the "locale" of the process it is 
starting under.
You can change these settings, by changing the locale of the process, 
then starting the JVM (and Tomcat e.g.).
For a Windows JVM however, there is no such "locale", and I've never 
quite figured out where the JVM takes its language settings (including 
the default charset).  I suppose it is from the Windows environment 
somewhere though.
I have a strong suspicion that your problem is in that area.
