The only problem is when you get input from the browser, is that
correct?  ie. Showing Polish statically or from your database with
your template is fine?

If so, you should check the encoding of your request.  Does the Polish
characters show when you do request.getParameter("so-and-so")?  If
not, you need to set the encoding of your request to latin-2.

Using Filter works for me.  :)
