I once had a bad experience with Japanese filenames on NT4 Server: a guest professor from Japan brought his Notebook with Japanese Windows installed and we hooked it up to the net (after struggling with installing a network card with english only drivers). The problem was that he stored files with Japanese filenames onto the server and then left. The files he left us were completely useless, I wasn't even able to delete them. They're still there, and it's more then 5 years ago ;) Nicolas -- -> My Commodore hardware projects and the X1541 Shop at http://x1541.de <- Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
