Alt Keyboard Layout Setup esp Russian

I'm having troubles trying to get cyrillic to work in KDE. I set up the keyboard layout for US as the primary and russian phonetic as the secondary and the keyboard switcher appears fine down in the task bar. The only problem is when it is selected for Russian, it only works in some programs. In programs like Mozilla, I get a box with a bunch of numbers/letters in it when I type using the Russian layout instead of cyrillic characters. Also when I went to a Russian site in Konquerer, I only see ???? where there should be cyrillic characters. What do I need to configure to see and type cyrillic in kword, mozilla, the shell, etc. on Slack 9.1?

NM, I got cyrillic fonts to display in everything. All I did was open the font installer in KDE and install all the fonts from my windows fonts directory and voila! All cyrillic fonts display properly now. I should include that I already had cyrillic fonts installed on my windows system so for anyone that doesn't have windows or cyrillic fonts installed, they will obviously have to find them on the web but just install them to your TTF directory in linux and everything should work fine. This is great!
