You should use either assci, latin1 or utf-8 as your source file
encoding, but you must use a proper coding line in the start of the
For example, if you code in utf-8, your file must start with:
# -*- coding: utf-8 -*-
As for internal data, you should use only unicode strings or plain
ascii strings. For example, in this macro:
def execute(macro, pagename):
* pagename is unicode string.
* 'Foo' is plain ascii
* The return value will be a unicode string
* You could use u'Foo' or u'Etienne Chové' as well if your coding is
latin1 or utf-8.
You should NOT try to return encoded value like u'Etienne
Chové'.encode('utf-8'), or 'Etienne Chové', unless you like tracebacks
Moin work internally with unicode strings, and encode the output for
you using config.charset. You can set config.charset to any charset
supported in Python, but only 'utf-8' is tested and supported.
