String encoding problem

To deal with MS word symbols in text input field, I'm using
tmpStr = new String(inputStr.getBytes("UTF-8"),"ISO-8859-1");
to transform the invalid byte 1 UTF-8 character to some XML safe characters.
Now I need to deal with Korean font input, if I use
tmpStr = new String(inputStr.getBytes("UTF-8"),"EUC-KR");
it can get the korean font text input correctly, but not the MS word symbols.
Is there any other trick to get around this?

I agree. Here's the link:
