The Mac is running OS X, with Java 1.5.0. The problem manifests in both Firefox and Safari.
Please see image for example of the error.

What could cause such in issue?

Sure enough the mac JVM had MacRoman as the default encoding and Windows was using CP1252. Passing in charset "UTF8" to the String constructor fixed the problem.
