More UTF8 pain

Does no-one in the world care about non-ASCII characters? It's pathetic. I'm trying to make HTML form uploads work for files with non-ASCII characters in their names, and I'm hitting the stupidest problems.

The main bugbear is mozilla - you can't upload files with wide characters in their names. At all. Piece of shit. Safari seems to be encoding the upload filenames with some made-up encoding that I can't figure out, so that's out of luck. At least safari sends the actual contents of the files.

The one browser I've tried that works flawlessly is Internet Explorer. Microsoft, at least, seem to care about the non-US market.
