Hi!
How can I write in Cirillic? Perhaps in other forums someone answered already to a question like that, but I don't find anything.Sorry.

Windows XP setup Jan 9, 2008

Windows XP supports cyrillic characters and keyboard layouts for various languages and countries. You may have to install this option aditionally (Control panel - Add/remove software). Getting used to the cyrillic keyboard layout is a different question.

Thank you very much, but even if I write in Cirillic in a word document, I can copy it in a site, because this site refuses Cirillic caracters.Why?

Try replacing the characters with either their numerical or hex code (easy using find & replaces in MS Word, or if you need to to this often, use a macro).

You can find the codes here, for example:

a) you give too little information to get a reasonable answer: what do you mean under “copy it in a site”? Describe your actions in more detail;
b) if you've got any problem with a particular site, contact the site's administrator.

General remark: in most modern operating systems, including Windows, Linux, Mac OSX, support of Cyrillic is no problem, at least in case of Cyrillic used by Slavic languages (Non-Slavic Cyrillic is a bit more problematic). So, problems may arise:
a) if a particular program is bad;
b) if a particular user does not take necessary measures.

P.S. It's a good idea to read this article: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
