For Windows users, when running Python command-line programs,
you can also modify the properties of the "cmd.exe" window and
tell windows to use the TT Lucida Console font instead of the raster

Then, before starting the Python program, do a
CHCP 1252
This way the sys.stdout.encoding will be cp1252
(tested with Python 2.4.3 and 2.5.1).
