Getting Tkinter to accept cyrillic text

sys.setdefaultencoding gets deleted after the module runs.

- open
- copy the next line
group:comp.lang.python recipe
- and paste it into the search box
Follow the instructions there.  Don't worry, it's not 2.1 only.  Also
there can be some minor improvements to the recipe (eg ability to print
*any* unicode character even if you don't have the means to enter them
through the keyboard apart from u"\uxxxx" sequences), but I need to
clean things a little in order to submit a patch (I think the info from
the post I directed you to already exists as a pending patch).

Good luck!
