I personally don't mind writing mails and LJ entries in English. However, I would appreciate the possibility to have some dumb applications, totally unaware of such notion as codepage — like, for example, Palm Desktop and Natara DayNotez — display my data in proper fonts.
My problem is that I work on a Windows NT4 Workstation computer. It has 1252 as user and system ANSI codepage and English US locale. And once I try to go to Control Panel, Regional Settings, set Russian regional settings and reboot, all the fonts become really small. Enabling large fonts and tweaking with desktop scheme does not really help — all the fonts are small and some of them are ugly.
I remember that in the good old days when I was working under NT4, I managed to solve this problem. Could somebody please help me now?
