I was hoping I could get some guidance as to how to use Russian font for a
website. I know that I don't want to use an image to display the font, but
how many options do I have? Please help a newbie out! Cheers.

Hi Paul

It has been my experience with Russian fonts to use verdana, arial,
helvetica, or any other sans-serif font. Also, for static text I've found
more success using the UTF-8 encoding for the Cyrillic. However, when I have
to acquire database driven Cyrillic (from a SQL server) Windows-1251
encoding had better support.
