The Tragedy of UCS-2
Apropos of nothing, I'd like to tell you a tale. It's not an original tale, but it's one of my favorites.

python - UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'xa0' in position 20: ordinal not in range(128) - Stack Overflow | https://stackoverflow.com/
So, even if your format string is Unicode, you *still* need to encode it?

Weird.

<code class="language-python">
print(u"{}\u00a0{}\u00a0{}\u00a0".format('non', 'breaking', 'spaces').encode.('utf-8'))
</code>
This is a classic python unicode pain point! Consider the following:
<code>
a = u'bats\u00E0'
print a
=> batsà
</code>

All good so far, but if we call str(a), let's see what happens:
<code>
str(a)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\xe0' in position 4: ordinal not in range(128)
</code>

Oh dip, that's not gonna do anyone any good! To fix the error, encode the bytes explicitly with .encode and tell python what codec to use:
<code>
a.encode('utf-8')
=> 'bats\xc3\xa0'
print a.encode('utf-8')
=> batsà
</code>

Truths programmers should know about case
"But I hinted, briefly, at the deeper complexity of case in Unicode, and I want to take some time to talk about that in more detail, because it’s interesting and because understanding it can help you make better choices when designing and writing code that processes text. So here, in opposition to “falsehoods programmers believe”, is my inaugural “truths programmers should know”, on the topic of case."
