I think the correct behavior should be to default to 
sys.stdout.encoding, although this currently isn't being set correctly 
when debugging.  sys.stdout.encoding is used when unicode instances are

There should also be a preference in Wing to override this for cases 
such as yours where the encoding that the web client expects may not 
match sys.stdout.encoding.
