Reading Russian text
Thread poster: Armorel Young
I\'ve been trying to read English/Russian and German/Russian Kudoz questions, but any Cyrillic text just appears as gibberish on my screen. Is there anything I should be doing to get the Cyrillic letters to appear properly? I\'m using Windows 98 (and Office 97) and have Russian language support working perfectly well in Office, so I can type Russian text and send Russian e-mails - but it doesn\'t seem to work on this website. Your help would be welcome.

In Internet Explorer, go to View, Encoding,
More, Cyrillic Windows (changing from your probable set encoding of Western European Windows).
This should enable you to read Cyrillic and leaves Western European languages more or less readable too except for accented characters. But it\'s very easy to switch from Cyrillic Windows to Western European Windows and back whenever you want.
Occasionally someone will post a question in Russian in a different Cyrillic encoding, usually K018R, so if Cyrillic Windows doesn\'t work, try this.

Many thanks, Jack - that works brilliantly, just as you say.
