1. GENERAL FEATURES
The LHCYR collection consists of three different styles
lhcyralt, lhcyrwin and lhcyrkoi. They are completely
analogous but intended for typesetting Russian in the
Alternative (codepage 866), Windows (codepage 1251) and
KOI-8 encodings respectively. Each style resides in
Styles of the LHCYR collection are intended for typesetting
Russian language or bilingual English-Russian documents.
All styles are based on the standard cm-fonts and lh-cyrillic
The LHCYR styles do not use language switching mechanism and allow
to mix English and Russian words providing correct hyphenation
and kerning for both languages simultaneously.
Modern Russian hyphenation patterns are included. We provide
detailed installation instruction for emTeX (lhcyralt and lhcyrwin)
and teTeX (lhcyrkoi). It seems that installation for MikTeX
(Windows 95/98/NT) should be quite similar to teTeX's one.
There exist several Russian TeX fonts distributions. At present
the best fonts are provided by the lh-fonts package. I strongly
recommend them due to several reasons:
(1) The fonts are of quite good quality.
(2) The fonts are supported and maintainers constantly
(3) The font set is complete. Lh-fonts contain analogous to all
standard cm or ec Latin text font shapes -- roman,
typewriter, small caps etc.
(4) Due to flexible design lh-fonts allow creation of Russian
fonts in various encodings from same metafont sources.
(5) Finally the fonts contains not only Russian characters.
They covers almost all existing Cyrillic-alphabet languages
Lh-fonts are available at
3. HYPHENATION TABLES
For a quite long time the only TeX hyphenation patterns for
Russian language where ones provided by Dmitri Vulis.
Recently Andrei Slepukhin created a new hyphenation tables.
These patterns follow strict Russian hyphenation rules.

lhcyr – A non-standard Cyrillic input scheme
A collection of three LaTeX 2e styles intended for typesetting
Russian and bilingual English-Russian documents, using the
lh fonts and without the benefit of
babel's language-switching mechanisms.
The packages (lhcyralt and lhcyrwin for use under
emTeX, and lhcyrkoi for use under
tε-TeX) provide mappings
between the input encoding and the font encoding (which is
described as OT1). The way this is done does not match
the way inputenc would do the job,
for output via fontenc to one of the
T2 series of font encodings.
