Subject Re: Problem with setting charset in multipart form page

Thanks for the tip, unfortunately it didn't work.
I use Velocity in combination with Tomcat and Struts. I created a class 
extending the VelocityViewServlet class, that comes along with the 
Velocity jars. In that subclass, I have set the encoding constants from 
"ISO-8859-1" to "UTF-8".
Additionaly, I set the request's and response's character encoding to 
UTF-8 (in doPost(), as well as in doGet()).
It doesn't change anything...

Any further ideas?
