jsp with utf-8 characters

i'm a new idea user, so may be i just can't find the right preferences...

the jsp files i code have to use utf-8 characters (hebrew,arabic,russian,etc.) when i type them into the ide-
i see all of the characters the way they should be. when i run the file on server- all characters turn into jibberish - they look like if they were not saved as utf-8.
this does not happen in other ides when i set the encoding to utf-8.
idea's deafault encoding is set to utf-8.
thanks for help.
