Russian characters

P: 1
We've just started to work on a Russian website. In the near future we expect to be running with a Japanese one as well.

Currently our setup doesn't allow Russian characters - we need to do any Russian characters using unicode.

What do I need to do to allow my developers to drop in Russian text without upsetting the 25 English websites that we're running?

Simply have each page that is meant to be displayed using Unicode set a <meta> header tag, like:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8"> 
The Apache server itself should not need any configuration changes.
