        Program is compiled on Windows machines.

      ADDITIONAL OS VERSION INFORMATION :
      Windows XP Professional
      Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 4 (Nahant Update 3)
      Kernel \r on an \m

      A DESCRIPTION OF THE PROBLEM :
      I am running same program on Windows XP Professional and Linux to read some data involving unicode characters. If I run the program from Windows it works fine but if I run it from Linux I get garbage for some characters.

      Both the machines have latest JDK available for that OS. I am inserting the read data in MSSQL 2005. See steps to reproduce for an example.

      STEPS TO FOLLOW TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM :
      If I read the following url

      http://www2.ac-lyon.fr/enseigne/philosophie/biblio4.html

      using InputStreamReader which was taken from HttpURLConnection and insert the result by converting it into a string to a MSSQL db with column type nvarchar. I get following result on Windows machine for the word esthŽtique

      Windows
      esthŽtique
      Linux
      esth�tique

      Please use the attached reusable files. RunTest.java fetches the url
      contents insert the contents in mssql database. I am using mssql 2005. Also
      attached are the java drivers for the same.

      EXPECTED VERSUS ACTUAL BEHAVIOR :
      EXPECTED -
      On both OS esthŽtique should have had got inserted in the database
      ACTUAL -
      Windows -
      esthŽtique
      Linux -
      esth�tique

      REPRODUCIBILITY :
      This bug can be reproduced always.
