In the JSP there is a field: <input name="award" value="AV® Preeminent™" />
After the submit to the java side, i.e., via request.getParameter("award"); the value changes for ® and ™. As the result, the value on the java side becomes : AVÂ® Preeminentâ˘.
Basically, both the ® and ™ are changed into different characters.
OS: Windows 7
Browser: IE 8, Firefox 20, and latest version of Chrome 26.
Thanks to help.
