I'm not much of a Python coder, but I'm learning to be a pretty good Python re-coder.
This was posted as a correction to a note I made about some character encoding errors that appeared on the LA Indymedia website. It's poorly written. If you need me to edit and clarify, send an email to email@example.com.
