I am having some data in database which is havig Euro symbol. My database character set is "UTF-8". When i am trying to retrieve that data into a drop down That Euro symbol is coming as a "box" symbol... I am also setting the response content type to UTF-8 in my servlet. And also setting browser html content type to utf-8 in my JSP by using below meta tag <META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">. Even then that euro symbol is coming as box only. Can any one please suggest a solution... [ March 21, 2007: Message edited by: Bear Bibeault ]

Would it be an option to use the € HTML entity instead?
Thw font Properties are: ---------------------- font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-size: 13px; color: #006699; font-weight: bold; we can't use € becoz if browser or web server dosnt support that char it wouldnt be displayed.

The web server doesn't need to support anything.
Arial and Helvetica both include the Euro symbol; that's why I asked which font was used to actually display the page, which may be different from the one specified in the HTML.
