Bug Description

I tried adding my OpenID, http://nullroute.eu.org/~grawity/ (redirects to Google's OpenID), and received the following error:

> Could not discover an OpenID from the URL you provided:

> 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc4 in position 12: ordinal not in range(128)

It seems to be choking on the letter "ė" (which is c4 97 0a in UTF-8) in my real name.

It looks like the error lies within the Python OpenID module or the HTML parser it uses :(

Changed in libravatar:
importance: Undecided → Low
status: New → Confirmed
