Uhm... on my system I get:

>>> german_ae = unicode('\xc3\xa4', 'utf8')
>>> print german_ae # dunno if it will appear right on Google groups

>>> german_ae.decode('latin1')
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe4' in
position 0: ordinal not in range(128)
?? What's wrong?
