Not sure where to post this, so hopefully this is right. We're running into a very odd and seemingly-isolated problem with cyrillic fonts. A website (ASP.NET, using VB) I maintain has a toggle between English and Russian text. We can get the toggle working
perfectly in the development area, but when I push the tool out to production, it works perfectly for all but one person. For this one person, every time the tool is pushed out to production with changes, the cyrillic font turns into gibberish characters,
as though her browser isn't rendering the unicode properly. Yet it works for everyone else on the team just fine and we haven't heard anything from any users saying they're seeing what she's seeing. She has the same setup that we have, and it's not a caching
issue -- every feature in the new version works fine *except* for the cyrillic fonts. If she closes her machine down and reloads, it works fine.
Does anyone have any thoughts?

Since this is the only user who has problem, I suggest you have this user use another machine to access this page. If it is working fine, this issue is related to the machine.
You can have her check her locale setting. You can see whether the needed fonts are installed, and whether the charsets have been set as default.
Also check the Language setting in Internet Explore. Put the needed language on the top.
HTH. If this does not answer your question, please feel free to mark the post as Not Answered and reply. Thank you!
