Incorrect display filenames of different char coding

i've downloaded some chinese name files from the internet and their name are not displayed properly in gnome. i m using fedora core 2. once i downloaded the files, the filename is automactically appended with these words: "(invalid unicode)" . as a result, i cannot open it unless renaming it to eliminate all non-latin char. i've no doubt on the filenames since they are well shown if i use windows to download......... i dont believe fedora has a worse unicode support than m$ windows.........
