Have you tested copy&paste of Cyrillic text between Emacs

I've tested it now and it worked well in both directions.

Is it problem if this function is always evaled when Emacs is started? One can want to view windows-1251 encoded file without being in Bulgarian language environment. Will this case be resolved?

But, if he is not in a lang. env. that mainly uses
windows-1251, I think we can't assume that he want to see
them in microsoft-cp1251 font.  I think the possibility that
he has iso10646 font is higher.

You're right. But we return back to the initial problem: I have -monotype-courier new-*-iso10646-1 and -cronyx-courier-*-iso10646-1, both with cyrillic characters. But instead of these, -adobe-courier-*-iso10646-1 is used, which hasn't cyrillic characters. And I think that this -adobe-courier-*-iso10646-1 is part of XFree86, so it's almost everywhere and f^Hruins everything. IMHO cyrillic characters in windows-1251 has to be mapped to koi8-r or iso8859-5 font (when not in Bulgarian lang.env.), instead of iso10646-1 font. But which of these two fonts is more popular world-wide -- I don't know.

By the way, I'm now designing a facility to use
microsoft-cp1251 for Cyrillic characters automatically in
Bulgarian lang. env. by implementing something like this.

Given that Bulgarian language environment is automatically selected when LANG=bg_BG, I'm completely satisfied with this.
