i am inserting some data having special chars, in one table throgh front end. The special charecters like EURO, POUND which are not there in key board are storing as '?' or 'inverted ?' in the database. But while retriving those values to front end(Using Ajax for the controle) Some of the special charecters are coming as 'inverted ?' only. Can anyone please suggest a solution.

Please take the time to carefully choose the correct forum for your posts. This is not a question on advanced Java so it has been moved to the HTML/Javascript forum.
