Hello,

is this a Tk bug or an idle bug or have I missed to configure something?

With Python1.5.2 I was able to use geman umlauts in idle. Now with Python2.0
(on MS Windows, BeOpen-Python2.0.exe) I can not even save files with
umlauts.

If I want to save:

# test.py

a='Ä'
print a

I get:

>>> Exception in Tkinter callback
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "c:\python20\lib\lib-tk\Tkinter.py", line 1287, in __call__
    return apply(self.func, args)
  File "C:\Python20\Tools\idle\IOBinding.py", line 136, in save_as
    if self.writefile(filename):
  File "C:\Python20\Tools\idle\IOBinding.py", line 154, in writefile
    f.write(chars)
UnicodeError: ASCII encoding error: ordinal not in range(128)

and if I try to type 'astr = "Ä"' in interactive mode (Python Shell):

>>> Exception in Tkinter callback
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "c:\python20\lib\lib-tk\Tkinter.py", line 1287, in __call__

    more = self.interp.runsource(line)
  File "C:\Python20\Tools\idle\PyShell.py", line 183, in runsource
    return InteractiveInterpreter.runsource(self, source, filename)
  File "c:\python20\lib\code.py", line 61, in runsource
    code = compile_command(source, filename, symbol)
  File "c:\python20\lib\codeop.py", line 61, in compile_command
    code = compile(source, filename, symbol)

astr = 'Ä'
