I am posting a form using multipartrequest and when i get the parameter mp.getParameter("features"), it is returning some special characters which i do not want.

In my form i am using a ° sign but when i'm testing it out System.out.println i get 40?繙C~85?繙C where the ° sign gets changed.

It works fine in other forms where i'm not using multipartrequest, just in this case. I need to use it because i am uploading files at the same time.

Any suggetions on how to get rid of? I tried replacing the string but to no avail.

Thanks in advance.
