Suspected Unicode problem when reading from excell

I have the following code snippet that works sort of ok.

import win32com.client
xl=win32com.client.Dispatch("Excel.Application")
xl.Visible=1
wb=xl.Workbooks(1)
sh=wb.Worksheets(1)
for row in sh.UsedRange.Value:
    (type, question, options, answerText, beforePic,
     afterPic, misc1, misc2, misc3, misc4) = row
    print question, options, answerText

But when I run it I get the following error:

>>>  File "C:\div\uninstalled\python\excell\jensMarius.py", line 9, in ?
>>>    print question, options, answerText
>>>UnicodeError: ASCII encoding error: ordinal not in range(128)

If I replace line 9 with this block, it prints out every question without
Danish characters.

    try:
        print question
    except:
        pass

So my guess is that it's caused by a problem with Danish characters.

Has anybody got a possible solution?
