What does this practically mean? Perhaps you mean that it affects the 
way this file will be stored in the hard disk?

For example is it different to say to Notapad++ to save it as 'Asci'i 
and different to save it as 'UTF-8 without BOM'?

What should i use? My script only containes python code(english) and 
greek chars inside print statemetns.

What practically does this mean?

What difference does it have with (a) ?

When a python script runs it produces html output or only after the 
python's output to the Web Server the html output is produced?
