How to type russian characters into html code in Dreamveawer

I am wriring a website in html and want to put russian text in it. However, when i type russian characters in html editor like Dreamweaver the characters don't come out right. They do come out right , however, when i view my website. This part is right because of the tag that i have at the beginning of the code.
Is there any way to type it in html editor and actually see what you typing. I can type it in Microsoft Word fine, but when i paste it to html editor it gives me this "?". I guess i have to change settings in Dreamveawer to understand russian?
Please help,

I have learnt so much from this board and now I think it is a good time to start sharing knowledge with other members when you can.

You have to specify character set in the head section of html by using the following code, which is Cyrillic(Windows):
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1251">

After this, you should be able to copy/paste text from Word to Design view of the Dreamweaver. This should also allow you to type Russian letters directly in the Design view of the Dreamweaver.

Please let me know if this helps.
