View Full Version : Creating pages in Russian

09-08-2008, 08:49 AM

I need to add the Russian version pages to a website. I have the text in Russian, but inserting it 'as is' gives me just some garbled text. Is it a question of the doctype and/or meta?

Does anyone know how to do this?

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hope the text is in unicode. Create a new page in notepad and choose "Save As" from the file menu. Give a name, say "myfile.html" and then choose the encoding as UTF-8, and Save.

Now you may open this file in any editor and paste the required markup. Also add
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"/> in the <head>

Thanks for your reply. Tried changing charset to UTF-8. Does not work. The text is in (Cyrillic) Russian ...
