Test reproduces 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\u2014' when using non-ascii characters in {% compress js inline %}.

This pull request fails (merged 86b1a24 into b3a3419).

This is interesting. I've tried reverting the changes pushed in #271 and that fixed it.

Looking at it closer, I don't understand why the .decode('utf-8') was added, because when rendering I always get a unicode (well, django.utils.safestring.SafeUnicode) string output, so no decoding is necessary.

Even better, removing that .decode('utf-8') introduced in #271 not only fixes your testcase, but it doesn't fail on the one added in that pull request.

Ccing @midiotthimble who wrote the original issue and pull request in case he can help us understand :)
