At least in Linux the system code page may differ from the filesystem
code page, there are mount options for that and when burning a CD I
can select a code page for the ISO 9600 filesystem. I am not sure
whether it is noted somwhere in the filesystem and whether a program
can ask how the file names are coded (eg when reading files from USB
sticks etc).
