Perhaps this is incorrect, but the line in section 11.1:
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, 'English_United States.1252')
didn’t work. I believe the problem is my platform is Mac OS. The following worked for me but wasn’t obvious:
locale.setlocale(locale.LC_ALL, ‘en_US.UTF-8')

Overall, your tutorial is fantastic and I appreciate the effort taken to create it.
