I should note that the file names of the files added to these zips can contain unicode characters. OpenUp, Stuffit and BOMArchiver can handle files contained, with any character. Though, take them over to a PC, where WinZip is king and you are screwed. The accents show up wrong and none of the non-latin characters show up properly either.

I have already contacted the developers of WinZip and it doesn't even seem to be in their roadplan - sucks. Modern MS-Windows supports unicode, so I am surprised the developers of WinZip don't address this. Maybe now Apple supports unicode characters in Zip files, we may see some changes.
