I assume you are using python2.5
Edit the file /usr/lib/python2.5/site.py
There is a method called
encoding = "ascii"
Change "encoding = "ascii" to encoding = "utf-8"
On windows you may have to use "mbsc" or something like that. I have
no idea what windows use at its encoding.
As long as all systems don't use the same encoding (let's say utf-8
since it is becoming the standard on unixes and on the web) using
ascii as a default encoding makes sense.
