In file `mydefs.lt' or just `mydefs' in the same directory your
document resides.  Also, don't forget that *ALL* `:' chars will be
treated as command, so you might prefer to choose a different name.
Note that the name must be either all alphabetic or all punctuation,
names like "@." are illegal.  Names with backslash and quote are
illegal too.  ":+" might be a good choice, it occurs rarely (in the
wild) and looks funny: :+{o}

If you want your German text hyphenated.  You will probably need to
change the font as well because cyrillic fonts usually don't have
glyphs for characters with diaeresis (umlaut).
