The last question I asked about a KudoZ problem produced no reply on the general point I was asking about, though the specific problem was solved. I hope I have better luck this time.

For KudoZ Russian-English question 516442, the email link takes me to a page on which the title of the question is displayed correctly in Cyrillic encoding, but the body of it appears as it does when Western European encoding is used, even though I am set to Cyrillic Windows encoding on my computer. Also tried Unicode UTF-8 encoding but nothing changed.

In general, questions sent in via KudoZ.NET appear in my notification email list (I am using Outlook Express) as a series of question marks, though when I open the page, they are shown correctly in Cyrillic (which questions NOT sent via KudoZ.NET are not - I have to change the encoding on the page to Windows Cyrillic to read them, so I usually use the link to the question page without bothering to do this).

Encoding Sep 8, 2003

I experience just the same problem with Russian fonts, even though I have a Russian version of MS Windows XP, latest Russian IE and MS Outlook, all the software just recently updated.
The most common problem is the Russian interface language on the webpage. I can't read it at all even after trying most of the encoding set in my browser.
