[thelist] Russian to HTML

I did install the Cyrillic language support. I did import the Russian
keyboard ( its fun :-) ??????????? ???? ?????? ) Well, I'm still not getting
what I want. 

I've been talking with MM about this. They suggested that I try using the
KOI8-R encoding inside D-UD and switch my font settings to Cyrillic also. I
also had to include this as a mime type: <meta http-equiv="Content-Type"
content="text/html; charset=KOI8-R"> So I start typing away ???? ????
??????? ??? and all is good except it takes me a good 4-5 seconds to find
each character on the "Standard Russian Keyboard Layout" I feel like I'm
back in the 4th grade btw. 

Well I can copy and paste all day to and from word to notepad and probably
WordPad too. I can copy and paste into Fireworks and ... blah blah blah. But
I cannot paste the Cyrillic text into Dreamweaver-UltraDev to save my life.
I tried to use both English and Russian keyboards to do this. Every time I
try to paste I get ????????? ?????? ??????. 

Now I'm ??????

yup this is typical problem.. well, probably installing cyrillic 
languages support on your windows will fix that problem. Also if this 
will not help - try to set your locale to the russian language. After 
that everything should work fine.
hope this will help you,

bye bye, best wishes and good luck,
