Dear SQLers:

    I think I have just managed to enable Unicode on my Windows XP
system.  Some stuff does not seem to be displaying correctly.  Some
has.  Maybe I am missing a bit?

    I found a lorem ipsum page for Russian, and a couple of
paragraphs of that worked fine.  Only some Russian characters from the
Wikipedia page on Unicode worked.

    Does anyone know of a good test for Unicode?  If it also applies
directly to SQL Server, so much the better.
