This all sounds like it is behaving correctly.

Space is not a legal filename character in RISC OS, so when you try to 
create one the Filer helpfully(?) replaces it with a 'hard space', 
which is ASCII code 160 (hex A0). That is what you are seeing as %A0 
under Mac OS.

Space is a legal filename character under Mac OS (and all Unix 
variants), so when HostFS sees one it translates it to something that 
is legal for RISC OS, presumably also a hard space.

Don't create files with spaces in their names!
