Mounting encrypted file system on Windows

http://askubuntu.com – Is there a way to mount (read/write) an encrypted file system on Windows? By "encrypted" I mean whatever it is that Ubuntu does to encrypt a file system when you choose that option during formatting. The underlying file system is in NTFS format. A related question: is it correct to assume that encrypting and the file system format are completely independent things? In other words, if I chose to encrypt an NTFS file system and a EXT4 file system, are they both encrypted the "same" way? (I understand that each file system lays out files differently, has different data structures etc). (HowTos)
