With pleasure, this patch was installed on our copany's production
server for half a year and worked fine. Lots of people had reported the

However i feel it needs a little bit more testing, especially with zwiki
and plone. I had one report about problems with plone, but i didn't
managed to reproduce it on my system with the latest versions...

The problem was an exception "ASCII decoding error: ordinal not in
range(128)", when he tried to edit some properties in plone document.

Maybe it was an already fixed plone bug, but who knows... If you know a
good way to attract testing forces to the patch, please suggest:)

Another thing a want to do  before merging with zope is to consult with
zope gurus out the right way to do the trick:

Current (0.9.9) version of patch makes StructuredText to return unicode
object, the earlier one (0.9.0) used to return plain utf-8 encoded
string. I thought (and think) it is better to return a unicode object,
since zope publisher could convert it then to any other encoding.
However the guy with problem mentioned above reported, that the problem
disappeared when he switched to 0.9.0 patch.

So, if someone has any thoughts about it, please tell (i hope i've
described clearly :) ).

and BTW, what is the best way to propose a patch?
