Hi All,

There's a few encoding issues on CodePlex. Does this fall under one of them?

Python 2.4.4 (#71, Oct 18 2006, 08:34:43) [MSC v.1310 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
Type "help", "copyright", "credits" or "license" for more information.
>>> _BYTES = '7FF80000000000007FF0000000000000'.decode('hex')

IronPython console: IronPython 2.0A6 (2.0.11102.00) on .NET 2.0.50727.1433

>>> _BYTES = '7FF80000000000007FF0000000000000'.decode('hex')
Traceback (most recent call last):

LookupError: unknown encoding: hex
