And ":*" too
Authored by: datawrangler on Jun 01, '03 12:20:31PM

those filenames which begin with a colon are netatalk's way of displaying non-ASCII characters such as a bullet (•), which Mac users often use to force custom sorting. I don't know how to translate the numbers, but netatalk has always done a good job of preserving these "think different" filenames for me. In the OS X Terminal, non-ASCII characters are displayed with a '?'.
