The problem could simply be in how you are viewing it, perhaps the code set on your PC. MOS has a number of documents explaining NLS issues, the docs have the globalization guide, and Frank has an informative blog series: http://vanbortel.blogspot.com/2009/04/special-characters-part-i.html
You can use the select dump(yourdata) from yourtable in sqlplus to be sure the values are the same from each side of the link.
