Hello to everyone.

I have a jsp page with an input box. A user can enter a document title containing accents such as � ...
My problem is that in my Struts action class I look up in a database to retrieve the specified document. The document's title for example is H�ROUX.
When I enter H�ROUX in the textbox, I receive my message when there are no documents available. The document however does exist.
The problem I am having is sending a parameter from my client side through my action form and into my action class.

Could anyone please offer some guidance as to how I could overcome this obstacle (articles etc... would be greatly appreciated).
Thank you all for your time.

Character Conversions from Browser to Database is the article you are looking for.
