Problems with Cyrillic encoding


From: Claus Tondering
Subject: Problems with Cyrillic encoding
Date: Mon, 17 Feb 2003 13:59:17 +0100 (CET)

This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

In GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i686-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d scroll bars)
 of 2002-08-29 on astest
configured using `configure  --host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --build=i686-pc-linux-gnu 
--target=i386-redhat-linux-gnu --program-prefix= --prefix=/usr 
--exec-prefix=/usr --bindir=/usr/bin --sbindir=/usr/sbin --sysconfdir=/etc 
--datadir=/usr/share --includedir=/usr/include --libdir=/usr/lib 
--libexecdir=/usr/libexec --localstatedir=/var --sharedstatedir=/usr/com 
--mandir=/usr/share/man --infodir=/usr/share/info --with-gcc --with-pop 
--with-sound'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: en_US.UTF-8
  locale-coding-system: utf-8
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:

I can type Russian (Cyrillic) letters in two ways:

* If I select a Russian keyboard and type Russian letters, they get
  into the Emacs buffer with character values in the range
  0x51450-0x5146f (for the lower case letters).

  Calling the the built-in Lisp function
  find-coding-systems-region-internal on these characters returns
  mule-utf-8 as a possible encoding.

* If I use a Latin keyboard and set the input method to
  cyrillic-jcuken, the Russian letters are inserted into the Emacs
  buffer as characts with values in the range 0xe50-0xe6f (for the
  lower case letters).

  Calling find-coding-systems-region-internal on these characters does
  *not* return mule-utf-8 as a possible encoding.

This has bad consequences when I try to use Russian characters in
email and Gnus, because UTF-8 is not chosen as a valid encoding in the
last case.

Best wishes,
