I get this whenever I encounter a non-ascii character in a non-unicode

UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xd1 in position 23:
ordinal not in range(12

The string in question is "... ESPA\xd1OL ..."

I completely understand why I get the error, and my solution will be to
simply convert to unicode (since the code that uses the string is
unicode ready).

I am wondering if anyone knows where I can find a mapping from this
particular extended ascii code (where \xd1 is ), to the corresponding
unicode characters.
