Dear Mr. Zagorodnikov,              Friday, AM

I have a question of Fonts for Ruby.
Given a plain file where lines 1, 3, 5, ... are in English, and
lines 2, 4, 6, ... are in Russian.
Do you have some Ruby code to read and print the English lines?
Then also do you have some Ruby code to read and print the Russian?
Lastly, can I read and print BOTH the English and Russian lines?

I use the Windows ME Operating System with an Intel chip.

Thank you so much.
