Actually, it DOES contain a non-ASCII character. Look at the 4th line,
containing an abbreviation of a Swedish date: sö (for sunday):

I changed that to sun instead of sö, and got rid of the UnicodeDecodeError.

The non-ASCII code is also present in the repository at the fourth line of the
file writers\html4css1\html4css1.css

You seem to be using a localized check-out.  This is a known problem;
<http://docutils.sf.net/docs/dev/repository.html#workaround-for-localized-dates>
for how to fix this.

I'm sorry that there is no better solution right now.

Best wishes,

Felix

I've now replaced $Date$ and $Revision$ with $Id$, which will never get
expanded to non-ASCII.  The test suite will run without warnings or
errors even if I do a global "s/\$Date: /\$Däŧe: /gi".  This is because
only .txt files use $Date$ now, as far as I can see; and all .txt files
are encoded with UTF-8.

So Docutils will work fine even if you have a locale other than "C".

It seems to me that the workaround for localized dates is obsolete now.
If there are no objections, I'll remove it from docs/dev/repository.txt.

Best wishes,

Felix

### 'Right' way to set default CSS for reStructuredText?

I have just started using reStructuredText for my own notes,
documentation, etc.  It seems to have just about the right set of
facilities for what I want, in particular the table capability is why
I prefer it to Markdown.

My question is what is the best/neatest/easiest way to set default CSS
styles for use in reStructuredText documents?  In particular I want to
change the borders etc. for tables.

OK, I've found the answer, in the command line arguments for
rst2html.py, however that raises a further question, --help produces:-

--stylesheet=<URL>      Specify a stylesheet URL, used verbatim.  Overrides
--stylesheet-path.

--stylesheet-path=<file> Specify a stylesheet file, relative to the current
working directory.  The path is adjusted relative to
the output HTML file.  Overrides --stylesheet.
Default: "/usr/lib/python2.4/site-
packages/docutils/writers/html4css1/html4css1.css"

Er, they both override each other?

More to the point is there a way to have an additional style sheet
which just overrrides some of the styles in the default style sheet? I
want to keep the defaults for everything except tables.

Presumably the over-ride arrangement means that order
matters.

Order should matter, but no over-riding should take place.
The problem with this lies in the default handling.

I should be able to use a URL for my global settings and
a file for local changes.  But the handling of the default
makes this unworkable.

It would also be nice, as you are pointing out, to be able

No, that's not possible, at least right now.  You need to do something like

<at> import url(html4css1.css)

### Any way to get <H2>, <H3> sizes without first using <H1>?

I know this may sound a bit of a strange request but still....

I'm creating lots of small bits of documentation in reStructuredText
and, for some, the size of the first section or heading (which uses
<H1>) is too large really, I want to use the smaller sizes without
having a bigger one above.

I know I could use a style sheet but then that would affect all my
documentation and I *do* want to use <H1> headings in some of them.

Is there any way to get what I want in reStructuredText?

Yes, I saw that, but it would mean that I need to run with different
parameters for different bits of documentation, something I was hoping
to avoid.
