[jdom-interest] encoding problem linux vs windows

I am running my program on Linux and Windows and then bringing over the result to my winodws folder where I open it with Notepad.

The output from the Windows is ok while the output from Linux has the ? in place of é

Obviously , this has nothing to do with JDOM per se but more to do with differences in character encoding schemes etc.  between Linux and Windows.  Can someone please  point me to a knowledge resource that can help me figure it out ?

ps: on another note , JDOM  Ouputter converts "é"  in my xhtml to    "é"   . I havent tested it with other HTML entirties but Is this a known bug ?

  My guess is that the problem is not with JDOM or Java or the platform,
  but with the editor/viewer/console (whatever), i.e. the application  that you use
  to look at the result. How do you determine the problem? If you transfer the linux 
  result to windows, is the problem still there?

    I am using JDOM to process an XHTML page. The problem is with html entities such as    and é

    On Windows , it handles  them without problem. On Linux RH AS 2 , it turns them into  '?' .  I am using sun jdk 1.4.2 on both.

    Can anyone please tell me what could be the problem ?  Why is it behaving differently on Linux ?
