I see...  And what python function would you use for conversion ?

I made some tests and was surprised of the results... 
I switched ZMI to UTF-8 (management_page_charset) and edited some of my
documents / properties and all went fine.
The generated documents are still sent to browsers as iso-8859-1, and are
not broken.

So my question would be : which valid UTF-8 characters (for typical Western
languages like English, French, Spanish, ...) would be invalid in iso-8859-1
?

Last thing, if ZMI is switched to UTF-8, then what is the difference between
ustring/string, etc properties ?

Thanks.

Pascal

You must write a script that converts any property on any object in your 
site that is latin-1 to utf-8.

So first find all objects you use. See what types they are.

Find all text and string attributes on those opjects.

Write a function that converts from latin to utf and run that on every 
object.

The hard part will be finding all the attributes, but perhaps you can 
write a method that can help find those properties for you using 
introspection.
