I attached a screenshot of the problem:
- the text_fields are filled with cyrillic chars. The page encoding is set to Unicode (UTF-8). I'm using the native
windows language bar.
- take a look at the drop-down menus for Status (Статус), Version (Версия):) When I just point the mouse
on the project drop-down menu, they disappear.

And... Are you intend to look at the first problem?
In fact this is a problem, maybe I did not wrote it correctly.
The cyrillic characters are not displayed correctly, it's
like hex edit :)

Thanks, Nikolay

So do I :) I use only Firefox :)
But there is a lot of users in a company or even in the
clients network to ignore it :(
The drop-down list are not so important to deal with them,
but the cyrillic input seems to be :(
I think for a while how people use IE without even know of
existing of Firefox... bad people :))

IE6 has a bug: drop down lists (html select tags) are rendered
over any div (without taking care of z-index attribut). So they
are programmatically hidden (with javascript) when showing the

IE7 seems to have this bug fixed. I could modify this behaviour
to hide drop down lists only if IE < version 7.

To be honest, I hate loosing time to make things work with IE,
when it runs fine with Firefox :-)
