    Russian P r i v e t
    MacCyrillic x8F xF0 xE8 xE2 xE5 xF2

    xF0 is the Apple logo.
    These code positions are mapped by the infamous Pirard table
    to your xE8 x95 xCB x92 xC2 xDA.

    The Russian letters from MacCyrillic were wrongly transcoded
    with Pirard's "MacRoman -> ISO-8859-1" mapping table.

    Have a look at
    especially look for "repair tables" on this page.
