Again, don't do that.

Years ago I knew a woman who wanted to use special characters on her mac for 
file names which were perfectly legal with HFS, but NOT legal for NTFS. When we 
moved her files to a Windows share, some of her files, though visible, were 
inaccessible. (Why Windows even allowed the files to be written without some 
kind of warning is another mystery).

Once on a Windows machine I ended up with a filename that had a trailing space. Nothing would get rid of it. Nothing. Every disk utility I tried found the file with no problem, but deleting the file failed because the trailing space wasn't recognized by the OS. The File-That-Wouldn't-Die lived on until the disk was reformatted.
