Hm, there seems to be a problem somewhere, saving a file on my
computer, uploading it to the web-server, downloading it to your place
and opening it. It is probably the web server that tells it is not
koi8-r but iso8859-1 or something. However, the koi8-r is not yet
working. What is working is the Windows-1251 encoding, as in the
example (ok, type your own russian characters and be sure to save the
file in Windows-1251 encoding). I would recommend though, to use utf-8
as described at http://contextgarden.net/Russian . I should probably
remove my page and refer to the one at contextgarden instead.

I had a conversation with Hans about adding support for koi8r aswell,
but I don't know exactly what to do. If somebody tells me, then I'll
do it.

PS I spoke to another russian I know, who is a Windows person. She
told me that they use the Windows-1251 encoding at her department,
contrary to the first russian I asked who said koi8r was the most
common...
