Format error has been corrected in some python files for Review Board, but it seems that this issue is present since several RBTools versions. It works well for text files with UTF-8 format, but when we want to upload diff with ISO-8859-15, we have the error describe in the "actual result" part.

In ISO-8859-15, there are characters such as "éèùàçê".

Thanks and Best regards.
