Issue #267 new
Erin Browning
created an issue

While creating reports in the list, xlsx, and csv modules, the following error was thrown:

UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 7: ordinal not in range(128)
File "/usr/lib/python2.7/codecs.py", line 369, in write.

I'm trying to export a contacts list from the bing_linkedin_cache module. I have names in English, Chinese, Korean and Arabic.

As a sidenote, the HTML report does not fail with this error; it succeeds.

From what I can tell, it's failing on the following name:

Adodoración Faomá

I created a contacts table with just this name in it and that's where it fails.
