    But your machine can send it -- the Cyrillic part of my email that you
    quoted looks perfect here!
    There are several ways to put non-ASCII characters in email.
    You can use one of the ISO 8859 character sets, described here:
    (Note that the page is 9 years old.)
    A more modern and universal solution is Unicode UTF-8. That's
    what I use. Here are some examples of what it can do:

    Outlook Express and Thunderbird display this properly. It also renders
    perfectly with my old Netscape 4.78 program under Windows 98 SE, though
    I have to click View, Character Code, Unicode (UTF-8). You may have to
    do something similar if the characters aren't coming out right. But most
    modern software should select the right character set automatically.
    However, it won't necessarily transmit UTF-8 by default. You may have to
    look in the Options or Settings menu to select UTF-8. If your software
    is set to use one of the ISO 8859 character sets, and you try to paste
    Unicode characters into a message, they may get messed up. I recommend
    sending test emails to yourself if you're not sure.
    To get Unicode characters, I use the Windows Character Map. It's buried
    in the Start menu (Programs, Accessories, System Tools), but I dragged
    and dropped it into the top level of the Start menu for easier access.
    To use Unicode you'll want to check the Advanced View box, then select
    Group by Unicode Subrange.
    There are also keyboard shortcuts, but I don't use special characters
    enough to remember them. Most of the Unicode in this message was copied
    from a web page; I'm not ambitious enough to type all that by hand!
    Unicode home page:
    In particular, try the link to the code charts (in the upper right corner.
    Try this Unicode test page. You may be surprised at all the unusual
    characters your browser can display!
