Here's sort of the reverse of this topic, scans of the booklet from a circa-1988 Soviet exhibition of US home computers, mostly Apple IIs and IBM PCs (there's even company histories of Apple and IBM, I think - wish I could read Russian).

One interesting outgrowth of all this is that while I may not be able to read Russian, I'm at least learning what Cyrillic characters sound like phonetically. smile

His font only has Russian Cyrillic, so I get ugly substitutions from another font for Serbian Cyrillic characters that don't occur in Russian frown But besides that, it's a nice font to use for a terminal session here and there.

Vas Crabb: Right out cyrillic is a bit different, we have 30 letters, and interesting thing about our language is that you write as you speak so no things like in English that you need to learn how do you spell words smile since it's always 1:1.

But main question is why would you need terminal font for Serbian cyrillic smile ?

Because I have a number of Serbian friends, and I can actually read/write Serbian to some degree, and I use mutt as a mail client, which runs in a terminal session. I also need C/J/K characters in my terminal font, but I don't think the VT220 ever supported them, so I'm not too upset about substitutions there. It's just disconcerting when most of the Cyrillic is in VT200 font, and just an occasional character is substituted.
