specialFolderPath rendered in HTML...localization and encoding problems

I write gifs to specialFolderPath(26) and create HTML reports that use those gifs. On English OS and browser, no problem: the HTML respects the path and shows the gifs. However when testing on non-English systems (Czech for example), the pathing fails because part of the literal path written to HTML contains high-ASCII characters.
The HTML pages declares charset of UTF-8, but only when I manually choose a different encoding in the browser do the gifs show.
Has anyone encountered this? There certainly has to be a straightforward solution to making literal file paths accurate across languages. I am just not seeing it.
