#84 specifying theme and theme overwrite gives unicode error

S5 writer (3)
Jeff Rush

With rst2s5.py, by enabling both the overwriting of theme files and specifying a theme, the following traceback occurs.

Oddly, you can specify -either- the overwrite option -or- the theme and it works, but not both.

[s5_html writer]
overwrite_theme_files: yes
theme: small-black

    There has been some work on improved unicode support.
    Could you please test if this particular problem still occures with a recent snapshot or SVN checkout?
