Thanks, Mark! cp1252 encoding was indeed the cause of the problem. Changing it to IS0-8859-1 in Tomcat solved it.  Note for those who encounter a similar problem in future -simply set your Tomcat environment variable as follows:CATALINA_OPTS=-Dfile.encoding=ISO-8859-1 Thanks again to everyone who helped solve this!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This message here, under the "root cause" header, looks like it might be
saying something significant. Do you get anywhere different if you
change Jboss/Tomcat's file encoding to something ISO-8859-ish? (On my
system, for the record, it's set to ISO-8859-1...)
