Hi folks, My apologies if I'm not in the right forum for this question.
I have a page with a form that accepts arbritrary user input in a textarea. If i enter a pound sign (�) and then submit the form, the server receives the characters A� (with a circumflex over the A). My pages are encoded in UTF-8 and have the appropriate meta tag for that charset. The UTF-8 hex code for the pound sign is C2A3, but this is obviously getting split into 2 separate characters C2 for the Acircumflex and A3 for the pound.
I don't know if this is a browser issue, a server issue or an application code issue. I've tested with the 4 combinations of JBoss vs Geronimo and Firefox vs Opera and the problem occurs in all those tests.
