I would be very surprised if those two characters were acceptable in file names as the shell uses them as wildcards. If you really want to use them, surround the name with full quotes, so that the shell doesn't try to expand them. (Using "what?" as a file name would be a good example.) However, you'd have to use those quotes every time you referenced the file.
