Hello!

When I request russian web pages with

XCHARSET koi8-r
XLANGUAGE ru
GET http://chat.home.ru

request lines, i got:

"Perepis' naseleniya! Vnimanie! Pros'ba ko vsem, imeyuschim..."

It means that russian words are written in latin characters.
But it should be (and I want to receive so):

"Перепись населения! Внимание! Просьба ко всем, имеющим..."
(it's the same but in russian koi8-r charset)

I do know thet requested URL is in koi8-r charset on the server.
What to do to get normal russian text in native charset?

Thanks,
Nikolai Tikhonov
