What fonts do you have installed? Russian characters are often
considered full-width in East Asian computers, so when they are pulled
from an Asian font, they often look like they have space between them.
You should install a font without this problem. I know that NS 6 has a
problem with picking Russian characters from Asian fonts, even when
KOI8-R fonts are available, at least on Linux, so you may need to tell
your webbrowser to use that font when appropriate.
