Dear All,

Who could advise how I can download cyrylic characters. I could be a great help in Business English for some of you, but I don't see Russian text !
Very many thanks.

Normally, you have to set your Windows properly to read and write Cyrillic. No special "Cyrillic" fonts required. Just go to Control panel and check settings for Cyrillic support.
Good luck!

Some websites Aug 19, 2003

Hi!

You can try download cyrillic fonts from:

http://www.proximasoftware.com/fontexpertr.htm

There are two options, one of them in English.

There are some other sites, but I have not checked if there is English version:

As far as I understand Aug 19, 2003

the problem is that you cannot read Russian in your web browser, right? If so, there is no need to download or install fonts, you should simply choose the correct encoding in your browser. In most browsers encoding can be choosed in the View menu. So please go there and choose Cyrillic Windows (or Win 1251 in some browsers). You should then see Russian text without any problems.

Please note that occassionally due to various reasons (glitches, for example, or somebody's mistake) the encoding may be different (KOI 8R or unicode). In this case you should change the encoding to see the text.
