[pmwiki-users] Chinese on VMS?

Is it possible to run the Chinese version on OpenVMS?

I've downloaded and unzipped the Simplified Chinese translation,
however when I unzip it I get a large number of files with garbage
extensions in VMS.

These look like: PMWIKIZHCN._________;1 on VMS, because the extension
contains non-printable characters on the VMS system.

There were Chinese character in the file extensions and that VMS choked on them.

I guess this means I cannot run PmWiki in Chinese on VMS.

Is this correct?

I find it interesting that I can save Chinese characters in the actual
Wiki itself, but it does not appear that I can run a Chinese version
itself on VMS.

Am I just missing something like unicode filename support for VMS?  I
believe we are running with the ODS-5 Volume Structure already, as I
have case preservation in the filename now...

Any ideas other than dumping VMS?
