Thanks for the bug report.  I've opened this as CodePlex bug #2290.  I've tentatively opened this as a 1.01 bug so let us know if this is blocking you.

One workaround is to do:


Which will work on both CPython & IronPython.

You could also pass None in on IronPython but that doesn't work on CPython.  I've put that in the bug as well and we'll fix that one too :).

more info on what 2.4 should be:

> encode(       [encoding[,errors]])
>     Return an encoded version of the string. Default encoding is the current default string encoding. errors may be given to set a different error handling scheme. The default for errors is 'strict', meaning that encoding errors raise a UnicodeError. Other possible values are 'ignore', 'replace', 'xmlcharrefreplace', 'backslashreplace' and any other name registered via codecs.register_error. For a list of possible encodings, see section 4.9.2. New in version 2.0. Changed in version 2.3: Support for 'xmlcharrefreplace' and 'backslashreplace' and other error handling schemes added.
