Rails encoding problem

I was trying to send an http request in my controller to get the
content of the response and display it in a text field in the view,
but sometimes i got a “redundant UTF-8 sequence” exception. Even if
the exception was not raised, the chinese characters cannot be
properly displayed.What should I do?

post your controller code…

my action code:
def get_content
@url = params[:url]
response = Net::HTTP.get_response(URI.parse(@url))
@content = response.body
end
