Special ASCII characters in folder/file names..?

Is there a workaround for the inability to use:[TABLE]
[TD="width: 16"]/[/TD]
[TD="width: 16"]:[/TD]
[TD="width: 16"]<[/TD]
[TD="width: 16"]>[/TD]
[TD="width: 16"]?[/TD]
[TD="width: 16"]\[/TD]
[TD="width: 16"]|
in file/folder names..?

No - because they each have their own significance within the folder/filename syntax so would lead to ambiguous interpretation by the operating/file handling system.
