Huh...

The part of the article, that answers the original question, says:

"Don't forget to install the fonts on the Languages tab (complex for Hebrew,
Arabic, Russian, or Asian for Chinese and other Asian languages.)"

It's interesting, how I do work with no problems in Russian, having no this
item checked in non-localized version of WinXP. :-D

Probably because Russian is complex not for computer (BTW, no more complex for
it than, say, German or French: the same formal rules), but...? ;)
