Thank you Vlastimil,

I tried to print it as you sholed mr, but I receive an erro:
>>> print u"étroits, en utilisant un portable extrêmement puissant".encode("utf-8").decode("windows-1252")
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
UnicodeEncodeError: 'latin-1' codec can't encode character u'\u0192'
in position 1: ordinal not in range(256)
