Are you running Windows?
>>Start Menu -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools (I think) -> Character Map

That shows you the available characters in your selected font. If you highlight the character you want, in the corner they print an Alt+??? command... If you use this command in the "Post to a Conversation" box, then the letter should appear and when you press 'preview' it should stay looking Russian! smiley - smiley


On a Mac system....
>>Apple -> Desk Accessories -> Key Caps

Shows what the keys will make when you press certain keys. Like, it will start out normal, then while looking at the Key Caps, if you press Option, the keys change. Option + a = å.

Oh, I got it.. Thanx that's a nice idea smiley - smiley It still doesn't have some of the letters though...
I do use an English keyboard or how else could I be able to write here?

Yeah, and what I meant is that we consider letter "ë", along with letter "ú" letters, though we don't use "ë" in printing and writing...smiley - smiley

Oh, about the writing here... There are front-end programs you can use for applications like Word and things that let your letters change into what you want them to be... Does that make sense? Like, I've seen a woman write in Word wordprocessor on an English keyboard and end up with Japanese... That was pretty cool. smiley - winkeyesmiley - smiley I don't know if there would be something like that for Russian, or for masking a complete computer over and changing *everything* that you type... *shrug* I'm rather ignorant of large-world-things.
