I have an asp.net website, and most of its readers are English. But some Russian Americans want to add Russian content to it. They would provide the content.
My question is, given that my keyboard is English, and my PC is set up for English, and my fonts are English, and Visual Web Developer is in English, can I just paste in his content into asp.net pages, or is there more needed?

How will his content be retrieved? Is he entering russian content into a form and submitting it like a content management system?
Theoretically, you should be fine. If your data is stored as nvarchar instead of varchar, you can support any language (it gets tricky with right-to-left languages like Arabic or Hebrew). But as long as you are storing the data properly and you set the
content type of your output to be unicode (UTF-8 works for most purposes) then you should be fine.
A good way to test is to look for russian content on the web somewhere and copy-paste it into your site.
