    Building a site in Russian

    I am trying to build a site using a combination of Russian and English... Unfortunately, I have no idea how to get Russian to display. I have the ability to type in Cyrillic and view Cyrillic but when I try to use it in a .html file I get wacky results. I have tried switching the encoding, font tags etc. but I can never get the Russian text to display consistantly across all browsers and platforms. Is that just the way things are for foreign languages or am I missing something?

    You just need to choose a charset (I would use UTF-8), declare it (with the Content-Type HTTP header, or with a META element in the markup) and that's it.

    I think that did it. When I just put the charset as META it wouldn't work but when I used the function in GoLive to actually convert the file's encoding everything cleared up... Thanks.
