Does unicode() equal to unicode(sys.getfilesystemencod ing()) ?

The follow statement comes from the Python 2.5 documentation
encode( [encoding[,errors]])

Return an encoded version of the string. Default encoding is the
current default string encoding. errors may be given to set a
different error handling scheme.
what's the "Default encoding" mean ? Does it equal to the
If yes, but :

>>>unicode(' ', sys.getfilesystemencoding())
>>>unicode(' ')

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<input>", line 1, in <module>
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xd6 in position
0: ordinal not in range(128)

It seems the "Default encoding" is not equal to the
sys.getfilesystemencoding(). And then,  what is it ?

It is sys.getdefaultencoding(). On a properly configured system this is
always 'ascii'.
