If you have enabled all all possible UTF-8 settings, and your application's forms still aren't handling your characterset correctly, it may help to

  • add accept-charset as attribute to the form tag, OR
  • create a hidden tag with name "charset" that the browser will fill in

An enhancement is planned for SAF 2.0 that may solve this problem. The change would be to add a default overridable UTF-8 encoding the form template.
