       I don't think that's surprising. The more important question,
       though, is whether you have a need for that character to have
       any specific semantics in relation to normalization or case
       mappings? I could decide to use an ampersand or yen sign or any
       other character in filenames to signify something particular in
       abbreviated form, but I probably wouldn't expect any software
       do to anything intelligent with that other than read it and
       display it. What I'm trying to determine (I admit, I didn't
       phrase it as a question) is whether it matters to anybody what
       case mapping is associated with a character they've used as an
       abbrev for "folder" in a folder name.
