UnicodeDecodeError with RadioSelect and funky characters

Reported by: Ville Säävuori <Ville@…> Owned by: adrian

I have following list of genders:

    ('0', u'En tiedä'),
    ('1', u'Mies'),
    ('2', u'Nainen'),

And following line in my form:

gender = forms.ChoiceField(choices=GENDERS, widget=forms.RadioSelect(attrs={'class': 'gender'}), label="Sukupuoli")

And i get this error

'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 204: ordinal not in range(128)
.. /django/newforms/ in _html_output, line 129

A temporary fix is to convert the problematic chars to HTML entities like:

    ('0', u'En tied&auml;'),
    ('1', u'Mies'),
    ('2', u'Nainen'),
