Hey, Gmane isn't updating so I can't really reply to the message (not visible in gmane) that I want to, but I saw the following solution proposed: def ourparse(text): if isinstance(text, unicode): text = text.encode('UTF-8') xml_parser.parse(text) now consider what will happen if you do the following: text = u"<?xml version="1.0" encoding="ISO-8859-1" ?><foo>Some non-ascii characters here</foo>" ourparse(text) what will happen is that text is converted to a UTF-8 string (8-bit ascii). It's then passed to a hopefully compliant XML parser. This XML parser sees an 8-bit ascii string, and checks the encoding header for more information on the encoding of the string. It will therefore assume the string is in latin-1. The parse will break with an obscure error and the developer doing this is probably very confused.
ok, got it. But this problem can be solved easily by changing the encoding within the preamble. -aj
