4. Make sure your editor is correctly saving the file in that
specified encoding. This is perhaps the hardest step because editors
all handle it a little differently. Some editors have an option
somewhere to set the encoding that files are saved in. Others may
automatically understand the "coding" comment line in the file. (Same
goes for any terminal emulator you may be using for interactive plotting.)
If you can't get step 4 to work successfully, you can write Unicode
strings in Python using only ASCII characters using the "\u0000" escape
(Here, the Unicode code point for e with accent-aigu is 00E9).
I think this may be the obvious problem (I don't how to change the encoding in pycrust :|)
So, following all of the above, the attached works fine for me with .eps
output on 0.91.2. (There were various Unicode issues in 0.90.x that
were fixed.) If it still doesn't work for you, please let us know.
