Thai and struts

We have application based on Struts1.1 on Websphere When Thai characters are inputed, they are converted to their respective unicode representation (&#numbers and stored in the DB. I don't know how this conversion happens, it happens only when the <CODE><META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=TIS-620"> </CODE> is used. When the data is retrieved and shown in the UI, it is shown in the Unicode format and not in the Thai character format.

After investigating I found at that the struts TextTag is trying to filter/convert this (since it contains &#). Since it is not able to find the conversion for this, it is displayed as it is. In the bean:write tag we have an attribute called filter which when set to false, turns off this process. Unfortunately we do not have such attribute in the html:text tag. I am using the ELTextTag.

It would be highly helpful if I get the source code for the strutsel package that came along with the struts1.1 package. If anybody has anyother that would be useful for me, it will be greatly appreciated.
