Broken multilingual links in apache2 even when url-encoded?
 
I'm running an Apache 2 server to host, among many other things, parts of my graduate thesis (so my supervisor can take a look). I'm doing the majority of the brunt work in Voodoo Pad 3.0 and using the HTML export feature to make (surprisingly nice) web pages from it. My thesis is in French. It seems that Voodoo Pad encodes the URLs which contain accented characters.

This link works (Looks like "le corpus.):
Code:

<a href="le%20corpus.html">Le Corpus</a>
This link doesn't (looks like "Théories existantes"):
Code:

<a href="th%C3%A9ories%20existantes.html">Théories existantes</a>
and returns the following error page
Quote:

[an error occurred while processing this directive] The requested URL was not found on this server. The link on the referring page seems to be wrong or outdated. Please inform the author of that page about the error. [an error occurred while processing this directive]
Any idea why this could be happening? I notice that, via the MacOS X Terminal (unicode), the files appear as "the??ories existantes.html". It appears this way on my local host as well, and I CAN browse properly using file://

This leads me to believe that the file names are 'wrong' in the Slackware 12 filesystem.

Any ideas how do I fix this (other than not using accented characters in file names)?
