Hi.
I am developing a web application using a language other than english.
my all JSPs and servlets has the following encoding:
windows-1256
when submitting a form, the form will be taken to a JSP file that displays what I have entered.
but the problem is, ??? characters are displayed instead of the right characters.
so what is the problem ? should I use other encoding, if so please tell me what it is.
should I add something to Tomcat conf files ?

You are getting "???" characters because of inproper encoding only.
Use UTF-8 encoding in JSP's as well as in servlets.
Ensure that your JSP pages are UTF-8 encoded by doint right click on page
-> Encoding --> and the the selected encoding.
Also, in servlets you might need to convert the request into UTF-8 again though the request will be coming from UTF-8 encoded page.
