  • UTF-8 and enctype="multipart/form-data"

    Hi All.

    I am having an issue in my jsp forms where special characters are not getting encoding correctly when they hit the server.
    I have installed tamper data and when i click the submit buttong the Euro symbol for example gets garbled.

    I noticed this wasnt happening in one of my other forms that had the following set: enctype="multipart/form-data". When i change my normal forms to have multipart/form-data i no longer get the encoding issues.

    I looking for an explanation of why this might be happening.

    I can confirm the following:
    Content type set to UTF-8
    I have set up CharacterEncodingFilter and all requests go via this.

    Be great to get some sort of explanation for my sanity.
