I think we'll also accept utf_8 or utf8.  This is basically covered under this bug http://www.codeplex.com/IronPython/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=3094  (although the description doesn't make it entirely obvious).

If you could vote on the bug it'd help raise the visibility of the issue and we'll get to it sooner.

Thanks for reporting this!

Did you try 'utf-8' (i.e. lowercase)?
