The trivial fix I use in Twiddler is as follows:

if isinstance(source,unicode):
  source = source.encode('utf-8')

Of course, this assumes a heading of either <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> or a missing encoding attribute, in which case the xml spec states that the string must be utf-8 encoded.

The problem comes when someone sends you something like:

u'<?xml version="1.0" encoding="something-else"?><node />'

What should be done then?
