Does anyone know how to convert an instance to unicode?
I understand how to convert a string into unicode format
u=unicode(s, 'ASCII', ignore), however this assumes that s is already a string and converting s by the str(s) method will kick back an error if s contains unicode unfriendly.
The strings I'm processing are 'instances' and the process works fine until the instance contains a character outside of the normal 128 character range. I found this link that I think is closely related. http://www.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0349/ Does anyone have any experience with this?
