HTML Form Upload produces junk characters

I have a HTML for with 2 text fields and the upload control. When I give some swedish characters in the text fields and then select a file for upload, the swedish characters in the text fields are coming as Junk. I guess this problem will come for all international characters.

I also found that this problem is because of enctype="multipart/form-data" in form tag (i.e) < form enctype="multipart/form-data" ...>

could anyone please tell me how to solve this?

Are you storing this in a database or just reading the values?

You might want to check your html document: make sure you have a dtd specified with the character encoding utf-8. This way it should work. But you must check the other end as well. Where do you load it to? The Oreily FileUpload Servlet works quite nicly.
