Russian Bible - KOI8-R Help Page


These Russian language pages are written using KOI8-RCyrillic fonts. The following intruction may help you to view the pages in the Russian language.

For Netscape Navigator version 3

1.Go to the Options menu and select General Preferences,
2.Select Fonts,
3.Choose the list item "KOI8-R",
4.Set a PROPORTIONALLY spaced KOI8 font
(e.g. ER Univers KOI8 or ER Bukinist KOI8), and
5.( optional - not necessary if proportional font is working ) Set a FIXED spaced KOI8 font (e.g. ER Kurier KOI8).
6.The Russian pages, including the Russian Bible, will automatically turn on the KOI8 fonts you have chosen.
7.For pages on other sites that do not have this feature, you can use "Document Encoding" (again under the Options menu) to turn the "KOI8-R" fonts on or off manually.
You may initially have to change from Western Latin 1setting to KOI8-R the first time but once your netscape browser has recognized the KOI8-R font you can return the setting to Western Latin 1and leave the font to the KOI8-R font you installed. You will still be able to view english web pages and the Russian web pages that automatically activate the KOI8-R fonts.
