internationalization question

hi all,

i've been lurking on the list for a while and have learned a
lot. thanks to all.

we've built an extranet application for a company with offices all
over the world, using servlets and xsl.  users can edit and save
certain pages. everything works when users use an english version of
windows. however, non-english offices also need to edit content, and
the "foreign" characters they enter (via standard text/textarea HTML
input) apparently get mangled or do not display correctly after saving
to the db.  unfortunately, i have not tested this myself as i do not
have an extra machine handy to install a non-english version of windows.

i've read the FAQ on languages, but the examples/approaches there all
seem to be parameterized on language. what i would like is the ability
to take any eight bit language, not know what it is, and "just"
display it....so that if someone enters spanish text, and has a
spanish version of windows, it looks correct. is that possible? at
present there are no encoding attributes in our xml declarations, so
we're getting xalan's default behaviour, and reports from the field
suggest that things aren't working for non-english users.

i could associate users with a language and parameterize the
stylesheets on language but i was hoping for a simpler xsl
solution. any pointers or advice on the right way to do this would be
most welcome.

thanks and regards,
