Looking at the results, I see that Volapük appears as VolaÃ¼k. Now the UTF8 encoding of ü is C3BC, which is the UTF16 encoding of Ã¼, so it looks like there's been some sort of confusion between Linux and Windows at some point. Alternatively it could be a fault in the Python, using str() instead of unicode() — I might be talking rubbish here, as I've never used Python!
