    1717
    18  * To be defined.
     18 * Make it easier for developers to work with non-ASCII character data when working with Django.

     27The various pieces will be converted in roughly the following order:
     28
     29 1. Template rendering
     30 2. Database I/O (requires introducing new DATABASE_CHARSET setting)
     31 3. Model class support
     32 4. Form input encoding
     33 5. Other output methods (if necessary; unchecked as yet)
     34    * syndication
     35    * serialisation
     36    * Google sitemaps
     37 6. Other contrib modules
     38

     40
     41 * Decide on usage of gettext() versus ugettext() in a number of places.
     42 * Look at rewriting gettext_lazy() so that it acts as a better string and unicode proxy.
