    Since David is apparently just learning about the capabilities of
    different font technologies, and the difference between encoding and
    rendering issues, I would point out that accented Cyrillic can also be
    printed correctly with font technologies other than OpenType, at least
    in theory. Unicode is not dependent on any particular vendor's or
    consortium's technology.
