Because you only have english installed as a language in Windows, that's the only character set that it knows how to display. Likewise, Because you have a localised version of Office (a version in a specific language) it can display the file fine. To fix the display of the filenames, all you need to do is install the appropriate language pack in XP. You do this in the Control Panel, under Regional and Language Options. Hebrew comes under the Right-to-Left languages, so you need to install support for that from the Languages tab. That will enable the display of all such languages (it lists them in the confirmation dialog box). That's probably all you need to do, but since you're in there you might as well add Hebrew as an optional input language too.
