Reading the wiki, it seems that there are no more fonts with cyrillic glyphs in this distribution. So I switched to XeTeX in order to use my system fonts. Unfortunately I stumbled into a problem when combining my fr settings with a font switching command.

Yes I have. I tried, but my MkII format doesn't work smoothly under MkIV. I am trying to convert it but I am afraid I won't be able to do it before my deadline.

Thank you for this example. It will be very useful once I manage to switch to MkIV.

Do you have a similar trick for chinese characters ?
