Ok, i'm not having file content problems... all is correct, i can upload 
correctly all kind of files (.doc, .txt, .whatever).
My problem is only about the filename encoding... the file, on the 
server, as the correct content but the wrong filename (for example, 
"tópico" is transformed to "t??pico")...
