[issue2052] Lack of difflib.HtmlDiff unicode support

New submission from josephoenix:

When passed unicode strings, difflib.HtmlDiff.make_file and make_table 
fail with a UnicodeEncodeError. Also, the html outputted by make_file 
seems to be hardcoded to use charset=ISO-8859-1 (line 1584 of difflib.py)
