I am using a python script as a cgi program with Apache 2.4. The html form uses a POST action. the cgi program writes strings containing some UTF-8 fonts (language=gu.
When I test the python code by itself, it writes all strings correctly to stdout (and the __self__ html page in the browser).
But when I start apache 2.4, and use the localhost feature to bring up the main html page, and trigger the cgi by "sending" the form, the lines which contain the UTF-8 fonts in language=gu - that string does not get sent back to the __self__ browser page.
I have tried many many python options and Apache config settings enabling unicode and utf-8 where ever possible. But pure python testing works, but cgi via apache fails at the utf-8 string.

Does your script send a correct header that it is html with UTF8 ?
