I don't really know why we were only decoding to unicode in Python 3 only. Just make sure that everything is in unicode. Should fix any remaining issues with docstring display.


Sounds correct to me, if we don't have only ascii or system encoding strings, then we have to take care also of unicode in python 2.

I assume since Vincent works on Linux, all the rdatasets will be utf-8 and we should be fine if we use it everywhere.


Yes, I think all of the docs are HTML in utf-8.
