Can you specify the exact platform OS on which this happens ?

If you installed Tomcat from a package, make sure that there are no differences between 
your Tomcat6 and Tomcat7 startup scripts, in terms of the "locale" settings of the process

which runs Tomcat.
(Under Unix/Linux, look for "LANG" and "LC_*" variables)

Some badly-written applications open Java streams without specifying their encoding.  This

causes the stream to default to the default encoding of the process which runs Tomcat, and

if there is a mismatch between the data encoding, and the stream on which this data is 
sent/received, you would see problems of this nature.

Of course, the reason may be something totally different.  Data displayed on a web page 
may go through a lot of steps, each of which could potentially corrupt it.  So if it is 
not the above, try to provide as many details as possible about where this displayed data

cpomes from, and what steps it is going through before appearing in the browser.
