Error converting accented characters into LRF with calibre

I'm trying to convert a book from mobi format to lrf. The book was translated from French, so it has a lot of accents and cedillas in it. Calibre gives the following error:

('UnicodeEncodeError', u"'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\\xe8' in position 38: ordinal not in range(128)")

I'm guessing the LRF format cannot handle these characters? Or does it not recognize the hex code? Is there a way around this, like making calibre just ignore the accents? Not a good solution, but it's better than nothing.

The LRF format handles accented characters just fine - lots of the books that I've created have them. Sounds like an issue specific to Calibre.

I think you need to specify the encoding of the text since apparently Calibre detects it wrongly. Try checking the commandline parameters.

Sounds like a bug. Open a ticket and attach the file.
