New submission from flashk <flashk at gmail.com>:

I just updated to Python 2.7.1 and noticed a small issue with the chm help file.

The search results tab displays incorrect characters for various topic titles. It seems to be an encoding issue.

For example, searching for 'json' yields the following results:

 - 18.2 json — JSON encoder and decoder
 - What’s New in Python 2.6

I noticed this issue on Windows XP 32-bit and Windows 7 64-bit.

This issue does not exist with the 2.7 chm file.
