Using Other Encodings

In this lesson, you’ll go beyond UTF-8 and learn about other encodings in Python. There are multiple ways of specifying Unicode in a Python string. You’ll learn that not all characters can be represented in all of these formats. The complete list of accepted encodings is buried way down in the documentation for the codecs module, which is part of Python’s Standard Library.
