I am coding a web application on Apache Tomcat. The web application is in Japanese and hence the requierd display is japanese. The servlet and JSP output on Tomcat console is perfectly fine however the browser dosent display the correct data. It just replaces the data by question marks.
I have tried setting the encoding to Shift_JIS and EU but not successful. Is any of the experts hava asolution to this. This is quite urgent.

Please do not cross post your questions to multiple forums. Most of the visitors here read in many of the forums and it is frustrating to see the same question repeated over and over. You have a better chance of getting a correct and timely answer if you post it to the most appropriate forum instead of using the shotgun approach and hoping you'll hit something.
