I am trying to send unicode encoded utf-8 or latin1 strings over xmlrpc
to a method in zope. The method in zope tries to decode the string and
it seems detects ascii. I then recieve an error that
"UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xf3 in position 4:
ordinal not in range(128)"
I can re-create this error in a python shell by doing something like:
>>> s = 'helló'
>>> s2 = unicode(s,'ascii')
so after looking at code, I assume this is what is happening instead of
>>> s2 = unicode(s,'iso-8859-1')
If I submit to this method from an html form, I have no error and
the data is stored perfectly.
I have tried setting the encoding of xmlrpclib.Server to utf-8 and
latin1(iso-8859-1) and making a custom transport for xmlrpclib where I
add charset='utf-8' or charset='iso-8859-1'.
Is is not possible to send unicode characters > 128 to zope?
The method is LDAPUserFolder.manage_edit_user()
