[ZPT] Re: Fix for UnicodeError: ASCII decoding error: ordinal not
03 Feb 2003 01:00:09 +0100
I've released TranslationService 0.3. It should fix the problems people
encountered when working with Localizer 1.0.0 and earlier.
The rules are:
- Don't use LOCALIZER_USE_ZOPE_UNICODE, because ZPT's Unicode treatment
is too broken to be easily patched.
- If you use any non-ASCII chars directly in you ZPT's, then they must
be encoded in the output encoding of the ZPT, which defaults to
- If you need a different output encoding, for instance UTF-8, set it
<tal:block define="x python:request.RESPONSE.setHeader('Content-Type',
at the top of the ZPT (Plone already does this).
- Don't use sys.setdefaultencoding() unless you know what you do. If you
set it to something else than the output encoding of the ZPT, you're
likely to see weird things.
I hope this really works for you now.
In the future, I plan on reworking all of ZPT's Unicode behavior but it
means many changes and I don't have the time right now.
Thanks for your comments.
