Problem with character encoding after migration from Jira Server to OnDemand


We have exported data from our Jira Server (zip containing XML encoded with UTF-8) and imported into our Jira OnDemand.

Everything seems to work fine, but we have problem with Polish characters, which appear as '??'.

Cant's see any options how to solve this. Please help :)
