ansii encoding

  • Hi,

    In Belgium, we use the character ë.
    But when I use this character in an app, I get an ansii error.

    How can I solve that?

    In Python 2, you need to specify the encoding of each file. This just means putting the following at the top of each file:

    # coding: utf8

    Then, if you want to use a character in a string, put a u character before the quote, e.g.

    screen.text(u'In Belgium, we use the character ë.')

    The u character tells Python that this string is a 'unicode' string, which is a different type from the normal strings.
