It’s a very long time since I have had to deal with binary code translations, but when dealing with HTML and JSON with Python, I need to get to grips with it. The € symbol for instance requires the extended character set support and rss should be written in utf-8. This page collects the notes I made in learning about Python’s support for unicode/ascii translations.
Here are the links,
- https://docs.python.org/2/howto/unicode.html, the documentation
- http://www.pythoncentral.io/python-unicode-encode-decode-strings-python-2x/, a bit easier to read.
- http://farmdev.com/talks/unicode/, might be useful if I could get it to wrk
