3.3b0, Win7, 64 bit. Original test script stops at
File "C:\Programs\Python33\lib\encodings\", line 19, in encode
  return codecs.charmap_encode(input,self.errors,encoding_map)[0]
UnicodeEncodeError: 'charmap' codec can't encode character '\x80' in position 6:

I am slightly puzzled because cp437 is an extended ascii codepage and there *is* a character for 0x80

If I add .encode('latin1'), it does not print the pentagon for 0x7e, but does print \x7e to \xff.

Someone wrote elsewhere that 3.3 could use cp65001. True?
