[XML-SIG] cgi unicode encoding problem

I am trying to convert CGI data, which arrives encoded with escape
characters, into unicode data.
t represents the type of character data that I start with (the result
of fetching cgi-field data from a cgi.FieldStorage object).
>>> t = '\x93quotation marks\x94, and a series of other characters:
\x91\xe5 \xdf \xa9 \xe6 \xee \x9c\x92'
>>> import codecs
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in ?
UnicodeError: ASCII decoding error: ordinal not in range(128)
I've tried using all sorts of other intermediary codecs, but I just
haven't managed to get useful unicode out the other end.
Any help greatly appreciated.
