thnx to your suggestion, but the underlying factor was webkit_path system parameter and because i am on windows based server, then converting path"\" to "/"

Hai Faraz Zafar,

    Convert into string to unicode your error problem is resolved try this simple example

a = 1

b = 2

c = 3

title = u"""a=""" + str(a) + u""", b=""" + str(b) + u""", c=""" + str(c)

print title


a=1, b=2, c=3
