Hmmm....I have a file that, through windows explorer contains a (long)
hypen, but through cywin (ls), the character comes out as a ?.
Windows Explorer is Unicode 3.0 compliant on the NT line (I have several
files that use a mixture of English, Japanese, and Chinese in the
filename and various description fields), and the 9x line can be made
partially Unicode-aware. I don't think the em hyphen is a valid
character on any Windows or ISO codepage (other than the Unicode project
mirror standard (I want to say it's ISO-11350, but I'm fairly certain
that's not right)).
