Hej!

I´ve got a problem whit the form based autentification i tomcat (6.0.20).
The form works as it should if I keep it to english characters in the password.
It does not work if I use swedish or german character (e.g. ä,å,ö ) in the password.

digest= MD5.


I googled out so far that it depends on the page encoding. But i don´t know how to get it right.

the page code (login.jsp):


Any idea how to solve this?
Can this depend on the MD5-routines used by tomcat?

regards
Ralf
