New submission from Yanfeng Wang <wangyanfeng.p at gmail.com>:
system: MacOS 10.15.x
when I inherit the BaseHTTPRequestHandler class, and call the send_error(error_di, msg) method in my own class's do_GET override function:
the msg argument can't accept unicode string, an UnicodeEncodeError of 'latin-1' encoding error with ordinal call failed of out of range(255).
I tracked the code, and found in the implementation of this class, the data was sent through a encode call with 'latin-1' hard coded in. in the file: server.py near line 507.
BTW, I tried u'my string'.encode('utf-8'), and it didn't work, another TypeError in module html __init__.py line 19.
If I commented the original hard code 'latin-1' line and replace with the hard code encoding to 'utf-8', all will be fine.
Thanks for your read anyone who cares or takes care of this issue.
