rlinks more 'Cyrillization'

Questions and Answers; links to other Cyrillization instructions

This section has a Q&A part at the beginning and then offers links for subjects that are not discussed on my site.
For example, I wrote only about an MS Windows environment and this section will provide links for Cyrillic (Russian) under Mac or Unix, etc.
I write mostly about Russian and this page provides links to say Ukrainian or Bulgarian keyboard instructions.

Also, even under MS Windows some program may require its own tune-up for Russian and while I mostly explained:

other programs, for instance, a graphical software or some other specialty software (which I personally never saw - one person can not know all programs) can fall into one of the following 2 categories:
  1. A program does not work with Cyrillic (Russian) at all.

    Example 1. I don't have AOL software but I know that it is just NOT possible to use Russian in e-mail there.
    (but as far as I know, it's possible to use another browser/e-mail program while using AOL as ISP - see links in the table below)

    Example 2. At my previous job a corporate e-mail system was a U.S. version of the famous "Lotus cc:Mail" software and there was no way to have Russian text in an e-mail letter there

  2. A program requires a very special, unique tune-up for Russian
    (very different from, say, Netscape or MS IE tune-up)
    and I personally do not know about such tune-up.

That is, if your Cyrillic-related question is not answered in my own explanations, it means that I just do not know the answer - I placed on my page all information that I have.

In such case I would suggest to do the following:

  1. you should check links to other people's pages listed below
  2. read or search corresponding Newsgroups (Discussions, Forums) listed below

Here is a summary of what is covered and what is not in my own explanations and instructions:

Here is the table with links regarding the subjects that I don't know about.
If you go to a page devoted to some program and don't find what you need, you can always ask an author of the page, for instance, by e-mail.
It is better than asking me about it: I don't have the information and the author does.
