The Internet is international. You are as likely to get uploads
from people in Japan as you are from people in the United States.
Different countries use different character systems and your upload
component has to be able to handle both Japanese and English
ABCUpload handles all this for you transparently via Unicode
support. For example a visitor uploads a file with a Japanese name
- all the file details will arrive intact. You can decide whether
you want to convert the name into something more URL friendly or if
you want to use the Japanese name or a derivation of it.
Of course ABCUpload isn't specific to Japanese. Unicode covers
every character system in the world.
