If your users are running Windows, then there is no problem. The core fonts
(Arial, Times New Roman and Courier New) include the Cyrillic alphabet (and
the Greek alphabet) as well as the characters for German and other western
European languages. Several other free fonts from Microsoft also include
these characters.

If you want your characters to be visible on Macintosh computers, then the
Cyrillic Language Kit would need to be installed, which requires a custom
installation of the operating system.

I do not know the availability of Cyrillic characters on Unix or Linux.

You can check the display of Cyrillic characters at:

I hope this helps.
