There's one thing I do not understand in character coding of the
server's reply. When I display, for example, tag sets, I can read

'a_tag_label': u'citoyennet\xe9'

in which  " u'citoyennet\xe9' " corresponds to an unicode encoded
text, right? Then I do not understand why we get unicode encoded
strings, while DEMEXP is supposed to have UTF-8 encoding...

The string you mention is encoded in ISO-8859-1 (or ISO-8859-15) : the
special character é is encoded on one byte only, so it's not UTF-8.

You're also making a confusion between Unicode and UTF-8. Unicode
associates each character with an unique number, and UTF-8 allows to
encode that number is a certain way. There are various way of encoding
Unicode numbers (UTF-7, UTF-8, UTF-16, UTF-32, UCS-2, etc.).

See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unicode for more information.
