Advanced Character Support?

Azure supports special characters for property names and such... and this caused issues within the storage library:http://blogs.msdn.com/b/blambert/archive/2009/02/26/blambert-bugreport-ado-net-data-services-data-services-client-url-encoding-bug.aspx

Considering that even Microsoft had issues with character encoding, not to mention the possible use of Unicode within properties (even rowkey and partitionkey), does your application support these advanced scenarios?

I don't see why not. That said, I've never had this scenario in our systems as we sanitize our partition keys & row keys before storage, and our property names only use standard characters.

Perhaps give it a try and let me know if you have any problems.
