  4. Select Cyrillic from the For the Encoding drop-down list box

Some pages in Ukrainian or Russian are set to automatically switch to the proper encoding. For those that aren't you need to select the proper encoding. The steps for this are:

  1. From the drop-down menus click Options, then
  2. select Document Encoding, then
  3. select either Cyrillic(Win1251) or Cyrillic(KOI8-R) In addition, since it might not be readily apparent as to which encoding is being used you might need to try one and then the other. Lastly, some web pages specify specific font faces; if you don't have those fonts faces installed you won't be able to see the pages properly.

Netscape Version 4
  1. From the drop-down menus click Edit, then
  2. Preferences, then
  3. Fonts
  4. Select Cyrillic from the For the Encoding drop-down list box

Some pages in Ukrainian or Russian are set to automatically switch to the proper encoding. For those that aren't you need to select the proper encoding. The steps for this are:

  1. From the drop-down menus click View, then
  2. select Encoding, then
  3. select Cyrillic(Win1251) for pages in CP1251 or User Defined for webpages in KOI8. Netscape 4 does have a setting for Cyrillic KOI8-R, however, currently it doesn't work properly for most variants of KOI8 for Ukrainian. In addition, since it might not be readily apparent as to which encoding is being used you might need to try one and then the other. Lastly, some web pages specify specific font faces; if you don't have those fonts faces installed you won't be able to see the pages properly.

To configure MS Internet Explorer (MSIE) 2, 3, 4
MSIE Version 2
This version of MSIE does not have any capablities for using Cyrillic fonts. We recommend you download a newer version of a web browser from either Netscape or Microsoft.

MSIE Version 3
  1. On the View menu, click Options
  2. On the General tab, click the fonts you want in the Proportional Font and Fixed-Width Font boxes
Tips:
  • Some pages use predetermined colors and fonts instead of the ones you specify.
  • Microsoft's Native Language Support (NLS) module (available for no cost from their website for Win95 and WinNt) provides basic fonts and installation programs which work better with their browsers.

MSIE Version 4
In development ...

To configure AOL Browsers to show webpages in Ukrainian
In AOL's Windows 3.1 WWW browser the fonts are hard-coded and cannot be changed. However, you can access the web through AOL using another browser. It is recommended that you install one from Netscape.

These pages in their conception owe a great deal to the work of
Matvey Palchuk's Russification of Macintosh and
Zenon Feszczak's Ukrainianization of Macintosh pages.
Much thanks to them.
