You should just have to register an appropriate codec using Python 
standard library module codecs:


One way to achieve that, once you have your codec, is to put the code to 
register it in your sitecustomize.py

If you're not sure how to write a codec, ask on python-list at python.org 
(aka comp.lang.python).

If it really is "window-874" (singular) rather than "windows-874" (plural) 
in the web page, you might want to register it under both names.  English 
people understand when east asians miss off all plural "s"es, but 
computers don't ;-)
