Here is a file name on a win98 Hebrew enabled system, that includes hebrew characters:


When you try t o "Save as" such a file - the browser -  pops up with an error dialog!

Can you check this ?

the request made by the browser is something like this

as you can see the name is changed, i think it is something like UTF encoding, thus HFS does not recognize the file name.
and it seems mozilla does not encode anything, but IE and Opera do.
i made a little encoding table for àèìòù, but i don't think it is a good idea to go this way.
could someone help me?
