What is customizing key sequences for input languages?


i am trying to send/receive e/m using the russian cyrillic chacter set. i am running winxp/ isp is aol9.0. i am using a translation software. i have "activated" russian as a language in ie6.0. i am able to copy/paste cyrillic from the software into aol e/m and send. but when an e/m is returned, in cyrillic, this is what i receive: úÄÒÁ×ÓÔ×ÕÉÔÅ ÄÏÒÏÇÉÅ çÜÒÉ É çÌÏÒÉÑ !

îÁÄÅÀÓØ ×Ù ÐÏÌÕÞÉÔÅ , which is not cyrillic.

I was told by aol to d/l cryillic fonts. microsoft said that was not necessary as "activiting" russian in ie6.0 includes those fonts.

What do i need to do for aol to show cryillic letter in an e/m?

thanks for any help
