Hhere is a good test file for uploading to ccHost to find out problems with multi-byte characters.

Basially, the issue here is that usually one has a localized system, like in Taiwan, a system would be BiG-5, hence the file name has a character and then .zip.

Thus, a problem arises, when uploading this through ccHost and the filename can't be read properly, and get all fudged up, if the system is not utf-8 (most servers/desktops in USA, even linux-based are still iso-8859-1)...

Ideally, ccHost should be able to accept this file, keep this filename intact/and/or read this multi-byte character, and allow others to download it...at present this file causes errors.

    魚.zip (is the name to test out on the zip file if it doesn't come through)

    I had to put the zip to test inside another zip so that the multibyte character name of the folder doesn't get nuked:
    This is the zip archive to look for and extract ont the test system. Make sure to have chinese language packs installed (often called cjk on linux/os x)
