Problem with charset

I'm using JSP, Tomcat 4 and MySQL
I also set: charset=iso-8859-2
When I receive data from my input form, some characters (that are out of iso-8859-1, i.e. belongs to iso-8859-2) comes in form of &#nnn; (e.g. š=š č=č etc.)
Storing data that contain that sort of chars into my database, makes them longer than they should be, e.g.:
(school)
škola - from my input form (length=5) is equal to
škola - when stored into database (length=10)
What way I could fix it?

Sorry!
This is correct:

When I receive data from my input form, some characters (that are out of iso-8859-1, i.e. belongs to iso-8859-2) comes in form of &#nnn; (e.g. š=š č=č etc.)

(school)
škola - from my input form (length=5) is equal to
škola - when stored into database (length=10)
I want to write into my database datas of exactly the same size as they apper when rendered in an HTML(JSP) page.
What way I could fix it?
