utf-8 not supported in fieldsets

If you have non-ascii characters in the fieldsets that particular object will not render in the generated template in the django admin.

For example if you use the next code in an admin class the 'General' will render correctly but without it's description. The name 'Información' will not render but its fields will render correctly. Obviously both errors because the special character 'ó' is used (and is really common in Spanish).

    fieldsets = (
        ('General', {
            'fields': ('mat', 'pro', 'per',),
        ('Información', {
            'fields': ('f1', 'f2', 'f3',)

I tried adding the utf-8 codification in every .py file in my project and in the contrib.admin but it did not work.

Can you paste a traceback of the raised exception?

I guess it's just an issue with unicode literals, can you try prefixing 'cómo' and 'Información' with an u:

fieldsets = (
    ('General', {
        'fields': ('mat', 'pro', 'per',),
        'description': u'cómo'
    (u'Información', {
        'fields': ('f1', 'f2', 'f3',)

By the way, you should use support channels before reporting such an issue.
