I am reading from database that has european characters as part of city names. How do I make sure that rs.getString("DestinationCity") captures the city name with all the right characters? How can i check the ascii code or unicode value of each character?

String str = "K´┐ŻLN";

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
