Ha-ha, unbelievable! How did that happen? First you
wrote in Russian at the Internet shop's web page - then
it got like that because of them translating Unicode
(?) to ISO-8859-1 (which is 8-bit, with the ASCII as
its lower half) - ? Why didn't the Internet shop do it?
Did they actually think that was a language or some
transcription of Russian? How was it translated to
Russian at the postal office? I can only make out the
first line: Russia, Moscow.
