You are using a different encoding on the web, than Squeak is using internally.

Pier and Seaside normally treat data as byte-arrays, they don't care
what encoding they have (that works well for what Seaside and Pier are
doing). This is what the server-adapter WAKom is doing (or not doing).

If you want to convert data coming from the web to Squeak format, then
use WAKomEncoded instead of WAKom. This converts all data coming in
and going out to the right format, but is also sort of slow.

Don't miss the talk of Philippe:
