I have a problem at hand. I tried to specify the encoding format in HTML page using <meta> tag, also set the character encoding of request object before accessing the parameters to "UTF-8". Tried to check encoding type using log statement, it is showing "UTF-8", but when am trying to print parameters after fetching, am seeing either garbage value or no signof special character in some cases. No clue why this is so ? can some one help me figuring it out ?
