The appearance of a blank (or a question mark) instead of a character
is usually a tell-tale sign of a botched character conversion.

For example, when I drag-n-drop into a native w32 Emacs a file name
that includes characters not from the system codepage, I get this:

  dnd-open-local-file: Can not read 
file:D%3A/gnu/ispell-3.3.02.w32/dictionaries/Tatar-Rus-%3Fngliz%20s%3Fzlege.htm

(%3F is the question mark.)
