Chinese characters in file names

            Hi!

 

 If I have a file which has Chinese characters in its name can be
committed to and checked out from svn (provided both the client and
server are on Windows)?

 

 I experienced that CVS read these file names as normal English names
and found that they contain invalid characters in their second bytes of
double-byte characters.

 Will it be solved if I switch to svn from cvs?

 If yes, will it work across different language systems? Eg. I commit it
from a machine with Chinese language/code page, and check it out on an
English language/code page machine?

 If no, is there any hope to improve svn in this area?

 

Thanks for your answer:

Ps.: APR seems to me not supporting code pages in file opening, nor
UTF-8.
