Thanks, Ernie, but I believe the problem that Aleksey is dealing with  
is that he has (literal) strings in ISO-8859-5 (Latin/Cyrillic)  
encoding, and he's wanting to pass those directly into FXRuby (e.g.  
as the label for a button). However, as best I understand it, FOX  
expects those strings to be UTF-8 encoded Unicode, so Aleksey needs  
to do something to convert his ISO-8859-5-encoded strings into UTF-8  
encoded Unicode, e.g.

	require 'iconv'

	button = FXButton.new(p, Iconv.new("iso-8859-8", "utf-8").iconv 
(original_russian_text), ...)
