Strange Character changing

Hi There,

I am running struts 1.3.5 on tomcat.

I have a form which takes a string and the form can then be submitted.

If a user has entered a � sign into the text box and submits the form it changes the � sign into A� this is really strange as � signs are not rendered correctly when the form is submitted.

I tested this on all forms on my site and it happens everywhere.

I think it is a strange character set thing?

Does anyone know how to fix this?


I agree. Here's the link:
