Problem with the Grrek Lang. in JSP forms!!!

Hi All

I work with site that deals with greek language and i faces this problem

The JSP page is working 100% with the greek lang. (UTF-8) but when my form sends greek statements to another page through TextBox, strange characters appers like that "Καλωσηρθατε" while the original statement is "Καλωσηρθατε".

I get the statement with <%=request.getParameter("test")%>

Thanx for help

the following is needed,

in the jsp page, do keep at the start of the page the following directive
<%@ page pageEncoding="UTF-8" %>
<%@ page language="java" contentType="text/html;charset=UTF-8" %>

if you are getting the values in servlet, then try the following

if(request.getCharacterEncoding() == null){

String test = request.getParameter("test");

hope it helps.
