Character encoding in Java (Linux to Windows)
Since I'm from Sweden, I use the swedish letters ĺ, ä and ö a lot in my Java applications. And since I'm on linux, using UTF-8, those letters get quite screwed up on Windows.
So how can I set the default character encoding to UTF-8 in my applications? Or does something like htmls å, ä and ö exist in Java?

I worked on this for about ten minutes, did not find much but the general area is somewhere in "java.nio.charset.CharsetDecoder"Introduction to Programming Using Java.

Java uses UTF-16 internally, so it should handle your character set fine by itself.
UTF-8 certainly will not work; in fact, you will lose your characters.
Java allows you to set the locale, I suggest looking into that as a start. The locale will choose an appropriate character set and integrate with the OS.
Also, make sure the OS locale is set correctly.
