We've supported non-ASCII file names in Content-Disposition for a while now, and judging by the lack of bug reports, our approach[*] is sufficient for Web compatibility. The only issue I know is with GMail, which blocks Safari server-side, replacing non-ASCII characters with question marks.

Do you have information on how frequently it's used?

Judging from


it's not supported in IE, Opera, and Konqueror, so it's definitively not 
interoperable today (besides, it conflicts with the existing definitions 
for the header).

It's the format that has been an IETF standard for a VERY long time.

If you have concerns with this format then you *really* should raise 
them in the IETF HTTPbis WG, which is revising the spec for 
Content-Disposition, and plans to submit it for publication soon (it's 
already past IETF Working Group Last Call).
