Python-list Digest, Vol 61, Issue 443

but still i am not clear with my problem.
if i test this one
 kk ='how old are you'
>>> len(kk)
but in my case
>>> abebe = 'አበበ በሶ በላ'
>>> len(abebe)
why the lenght is 23 while I am expecting to be 9 only. becuase I have
9 characters(including space) just typed.
there must be a kind of trick over it.
thanks all
Seid M
