I am facing a problem with double byte values (Kanji, Kana Characters - Japenese). I have an application which fetches the double byte values from db and displaying it in jsp page. While dislpaying in the jsp, all the kana and kanji are displaying properly. I need to download the csv(excel) of whatever we displaying in the jsp. While opening the csv, I am getting the question marks(?) in the place of kana and kanji characters. I have tried with setting the content type to UTF-8.

response.setContentType("text/html;UTF-8");
response.setCharacterEncoding("SJIS");

But nothing is working. I am wondering how it's being displaying properly in the JSP page with only setting the content type as UTF-8 charset, but not in the excel. Whether I am missing anything? Please help to throw some light on it.

Have you looked at the actual output from the JSP with a text editor (one that supports that character set)?

If not, it will be hard for you to determine whether the problem is on the JSP side or the Excel side.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
