 Can you give more precisions please. I am not very familiar with Python

you mean by \u notation.

The problem you have is not specific to Python - you try to encode
unicode string in the
source file without givin its encoding (I guess in your case it's UTF-8).

Can you try putting the following in your code: 

querystring = u"select id from project where name='T2 :
Conformit\u00E9: plan fonctionnel'"

projid = db.loadVal(querystring.encode("iso-8859-15"))
if projid == None:
   print "projid1:None"
   print "projid1:"+projid

projid = db.loadVal(querystring.encode("utf-8"))

See also description of Python unicode implementation

taking into account jython differences

Hope this helps,
