UTF-8 encoding when building URL

(Hope this is the correct address for this question).
I'm collecting parameters from a form (using Struts on Tomcat) to build a URL. The problem appears when special chars like '�', '�', '�', etc. are sent with the URL. I use DOMParser's parse method to retrieve an XML document from a server (connecting using the mentioned URL). Does anyone have a nice solution to this (apart from scanning the whole URL string and replace special chars)?
Thank you.
I agree. Here's the link:
