Run into a bug in wget last week.
Done some digging but can't solve it by my self.

If i tries to wget a file containing capital ÅÄÖ they gets coverted
wrongly, and åäö works fine.

I uses wget -m to backup one of my webb-sites to another machine. Have
worked like a cahrm for the last 4-5 years but a couple of week ago one
of teh files came down wrong. Thought it was a college that had uploaded
something wrong but after some digging it's wget that converts wrongly.

I have UTF-8 as charset on my machine.

If you want to test/see the problem

wget -m http://bmit.se/wget
Just use
wget --restrict-file-names=nocontrol -m http://bmit.se/wget
Still the same problem. åäö OK but ÅÄÖ gets wrong.
I switched my environment to UTF-8 now and it seems to work:

On my main-machine to, didn't have access to that one yesterday-evening.

Thanx for the help.
