QT path issues

I have a path to a move file which plays well, until I insert a "ƒ" 
character (Option-F on Mac) into one of the folder names -- then I get a 
"can't create movie reference" error.

I'm already using the "file:" trick to set the file path -- here's the code:

   put "file://"&pMovieFile into tPath
   replace space with "%20" in tPath
   set the fileName of player "QT" to tPath

What else can I do to account for such anomalies in the path?
