UTF-8 Character encoding issue

I am very new to Alfresco and have some basic questions related to UTF-8 character set.

I am trying to create a folder/discussion topic using "Tamil" language. It is showing ????" marks after creation of the folder.

Following things where done by me:
Installed community version of alfresco. Installed mysql with UTF-8  encoding.
I checked that tomcat server.xml file contains URIencoding as "UTF-8".
I created language files under: tomcat/webapps/alfresco/WEB-INF/classes/alfresco/messages directory specific to Tamil.  I made sure that  "encoding_utf8=UTF-8" is present in /

I have a plugin which allows me to enter "Tamil" characters using firefox browser. I used that plugin to enter "Tamil" text while creating the folder and discussion topic. But after entering the text, it stores the data  and display back as "????" marks.
Search functionality is working fine:  If I do search, it is retrieving correctly. but it only displays "????" marks.

How can I configure Alfresco to allow for "Tamil"  characters?

I appreciate any help to resolve the issue.

Thank you very much
