They're just files. In what way aren't they supported?

Access doesn't really support that either. But 2 staff at the school I 
work for often have the same Access file open. Not sure if they both get 
read/write, but as I understand it, MS limited Access network 
performance by design to encourage people to use MS-SQL Server instead.

I just renamed a file to have a % in it's name, so yes, it works.

We use Samba at a school, where often students are saving work into the 
one folder for staff to mark. Works fine.
