Could someone please explain the following behavior to me:
Python 2.7.7, MacOS 10.9 Mavericks
>>> import sys
>>> [ord(c) for c in 'AÄ']
[65, 195, 132]
>>> [ord(c) for c in u'AÄ']
My obviously wrong understanding:
‚AÄ‘ in ‚ascii‘ are two characters
one with ord A=65 and
one with ord Ä=196 ISO8859-1 <depends on code table>
—-> why [65, 195, 132]
u’AÄ’ is an Unicode string
—-> why [65, 196]
It is just the other way round as I would expect.
