hi out there!

there's been some discussion about utf-8 vs. unicode strings on the
list lately. i'd like to ask if my gained understandings are correct
und thus possibly make it clear to others also.

i have set my python default encoding to utf-8, i always send http
responses from zope as utf-8 (by setting the header like this:
  tal:define="dummy python:request.RESPONSE.\
  setHeader('Content-Type','text/html;; charset=utf-8')"

so if i'd like to use unicode strings in my zope applications, it's
still necessary to convert request variables to unicode by using
unicode(REQUEST.foo, 'utf-8'), right?

as far as i understodd, the conversion back to utf-8 is handled
automagically by zope (if the abovementioned header is set), also

thanks in advance for your answers!

regards, juergen herrmann
