v.0.1.5, 25 February 2001

Short guide in setting up Belarusian language support in Linux console, X Window System, web-browsers, text editors, etc. Charsets used in the setup are either windows-1251 or iso-8859-5. Belarusian characters can also be found in koi8-ub, koi8-c, koi8-ru and, of course, Unicode. Although this HOWTO is Linux-specific, many advices are applicable to other UNIX-like systems.
