Getting Error Trying To Download URL Containing Chinese Characters

I have the following URL that was HTML encoded in my web page:
<a HREF="transfer/rad0/﨨.jpg" TARGET="_blank">﨨.jpg</a>
I am attempting to download this file which is simply one chinese character followed by .jpg. For IE, Netscape, Safari I right click on this URL and attempt to download the file. If the name contains only ASCII characters it works. I also cannot cut and paste this URL directly into IE and retrieve my image either. What do I need to do to be able to use Chinese (unicode) characters in URL's?

You can read some information here! In this case they are talking about IIS
5.1 on XP pro but I guess the same problem may occure on a server machine.
