You can represent ® with &#174; in html.

This is HTML Entity Element.

That does not really solve my problem

the jsp is reading a text file
on one machine all the special character display fine
on the other they are all question marks.

The probelm is that on client PC character encoding which doesn't include  registered trademark can be enabled. Try to set encoding on clinet by using JSP directive at the beginning of your JS page:
<%@ page contentType="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" %>

i can not remember what it was originally but now the line in the file reads
LANG="en_US"

Hope that help
