When I open a russian text file I see it in gibrish (Hebrew letters), in spite of that I can write in russian.

How can I see that file in russian (not gibrish)? I use WIN7 (This file is a movie subtitle file)

Open it in a text editor that supports multiple encodings (such as Geany) and try various encodings until you find the correct one.

And use font, which supports all these codepages – Lazy Badger Jan 6 '12 at 20:11
I used arial that should support all. – 11alex11 Jan 7 '12 at 8:25
