Localized letters in filenames

Sep 12, 2008 at 8:54 AM

I was wondering if I missed something regarding options on how to use localized letters (in this case the Danish Æ, Ø, Å).

I got the library to work just fine (it's great!), and I string replaced the danish letters so Æ was made into Ae, Ø into Oe and Å into Aa. Thats the old way of writing those letters.
I just want to make sure there's no way to make the filenames appear correct? If not, it's no biggie, the library still covers my most important uses.

Support for that stuff is an open work item! 
So, no, you are not missing anything.  The library doesn't yet properly handle files with such names.
I hope to get to that soon, and I need testers!
Can you send me a zipfile with filenames that have localized letters?

And also, can you tell me how to create one?  I have Windows Vista and cannot create a zip (compressed folder) that contains files with such names.
It doesn't work for me.

As a result I don't know how to verify that a zipfile created by the DotNetZip library, containing filenames with "localized letters",  is valid.
