Hi, I use IE to call my servlet, and characters in the path info are russian ("qwerty" key strokes when typed in russian).

e.g., http://localhost:8080/axis/servlet/qxpsm/йцукен (Pls note u will not see russian in the above, as it wil be encoded)

The whole URL is encoded by IE. At servlet side, when I receive pathinfo using getPathInfo method, I get

%D0%B9%D1%86%D1%83%D0%BA%D0%B5%D0%BD for russian part.

Now, when I try to decode it using UTF-8 (URLDecoder.decode()), I get ??????

Any idea how to get back original russian characters?
