Unicode errors

12:39 PM on Tuesday, October 22, 2002

The validator now gives useful error messages in the case where you explicitly define a "utf-8" character encoding but use 8-bit characters. This was causing a UnicodeError internally, which we weren't trapping. Now trapping, and I wrote up a UnicodeError documentation page to match. Thanks to Shelley Powers for the bug report.

This fix and the fixes that Sam is working on with RSS 1.0 image and textinput elements will be available in version 1.0.2 shortly.
