Thai language characters not displaying correctly in browser

Hello all

I am starting to develop a multilingual application which will include both english and thai.

The problem Im having is that the browser displays only garbage when Im fetching a report on a table that includes Thai characters in a column.

What Im seeing is something like this:

Language Id     Short     Name
0     ENG     English
1     THA     à¸„นไทย

Things that I have checked:

- The database character set is AL32UTF8
- The same is set for NLS_LANG when starting the database, listener, OHS
- The same is configured in dads.conf
- The browser is set to Unicode as well ( and can display normal thai websites without any problems)

I have tested on a windows 7 client, as well as locally to the database on the linux box using firefox, both show the same result.

In xterm I have no problems inserting and querying thai characters. Its all shown correctly.

I tried with chinese characters as well, and I see the same result.

Any ideas please let me know
