      Look closely to see if they have a cyrillic character set! ;)

      I have a Cyrillic DRCS (Downline loadable Character Set) for the VT200
      and later terminals. I don't recall if the VT100 accepts DRCS. It was
      always a hoot to install them on the terminals in the DoD labs when US
      dignitaries paid us a visit! :)
