Karrigell/Manage encodings

The encoding of a page can be set by the built-in name ENCODING. It will define the Content-type header sent by the server

It affects both the encoding used to encode the data submitted by a form, and the encoding used to transform the bytestring received on the network connection to a string printed in the browser

Here is an example :

ENCODING = "utf-8"
def index(**kw):
    form = FORM(action="show",method="POST")
    form <= INPUT(name="src")
    form <= INPUT(Type="submit",value="Ok")
    return HTML(BODY(form))
def show(src):
    return src

By default, ENCODING is set to sys.getdefaultencoding()
