Apache MIME Problem

Hi all,
My web application receives xml files through web service(Axis)and stores them on local filesystem.I am using tomcat 5.x behind apache 2.x web server.
The problem is that the "�", "�" characters inside xml are displayed as "??". Is it MIME type problem?

If yes then please suggest where i can provide valid mime types.

A different instance of the same application on different machine works fine.Thats why i am clueless why its not working.All the configuration are identical on both the machines.

regards,
ajse

No, it is most likely a character set problem.

But the problem could be in a place you don't expect. What software are you using to look at the content of the XML file? Are you sure that the problem isn't in that software? Maybe it doesn't know what character set your XML file is in.
