Option to auto-convert Russian transliteration into Cyrillic characters when posting
Short, concise description of the idea
Many LJ users write in Cyrillic. Many computers don't support typing in Cyrillic. The current solution is to use a transliteration site such as www.translit.ru, copy the text and post it into LJ. Better to have an option in LJ to convert transliteration to Cyrillic automatically.
Full description of the idea
LJ has a large Cyrillic-writing community. People working on computers without support for typing in Cyrillic (e.g. from computers at work) have to spell Russian words with English letters; this is hard to read. An alternative is to go to a site such as www.translit.ru or www.cifirica.ru, convert transliteration into Cyrillic there, then copy the result into LJ. This is cumbersome and discourages posting. Much better to have a checkbox when posting entries or comments, to let the user write transliterated text that LJ would then convert to Cyrillic and post it, after letting the user preview the result of conversion.
