I am facing a boring problem.

We use a small application to extract some files
from a SQL database and copy them to a FreeBSD
WEBDAV server ( apache + mod dav )

the problem comes when a filename contains some
French characters,  it cannot be found by apache

here is some error message I get in apache.log

[19/May/2011:16:49:05 +0200] "GET 
HTTP/1.1" 404 1227

the problem is %C3%A9 character it seems witch is an e with acute accent
that appear as an ? in the filename in a terminal

Thanks a lot for any info
