- Dear Father Innokenty,
I was delighted to see that you have begun checking my first
draft translation of the typicon for Pentecost. However, my computer
was not able to read most of your post. Do I need some special
software to read it?

I believe that you can remedy this situation without any special
software. Whenever you encounter text that should read as Russian in
your web browser, go to the Preferences or Settings (it's found in one
of the menus that pull down). Look for the "encodings" or "page
encodings" option, and then select Cyrillic CP-1251 or Russian CP-1251
or Windows Russian (it's called different things in different browsers).
Of course you will need to have fonts installed that will display
Russian/Cyrillic characters, but most computers these days have them
as part of the operating system (Times New Roman, Arial, Tahoma and
several others are Unicode typeaces that contain characters for a wide
range of languages). If you use Windows you are OK, but if you are
using a Mac then let me know, and I can give you a call and guide you
through the process of getting set up.
