Ack! sorry I didn't catch this thread earlier, its seems to have
spiralled out of control.

Its not a problem with jabberpy but your Python setup. All you need to
do is edit your Python site.py file to change Pythons default encoding.

Look for the line;

encoding = "ascii"

in your pythons site.py ( In your Python lib directory, probably
something like /usr/local/lib/python2.1/ ) and change it to;

encoding = "utf-8" 

All should now be fine.
