There are a couple of different potential causes for that kind of problem.
First, check the character set of the document you're trying to display. For Java code, there's an argument that sets the character set of the .java file. If you're using the GRIN compiler, always use UTF-8.
Then, make sure the font you're using has glyphs for the characters you want to display.
If you get these two things right, it should "just work" - Java is all Unicode-based, so within the code you don't have to worry about character sets (unless you're reading a file, in which case there's API support for specifying the character set).
