Sure, but that does not help at all. self.all is a Unicode string;
information about its original encoding is not available anymore.
If you want to write self.all to f, you need to encode it explicitly,
f.write(header + self.all.encode("koi8-r") + footer)
Instead of koi8-r, you should use the enccoding of f, of course.

This is not really supposed to work (yet). You need to pass
byte strings to xml.sax.parseString, not Unicode strings.
