Windows 7: Printing wrong characters for Russian and Chinese

Printing wrong characters for Russian and Chinese

ive got several printers and computers, which give different results. Win Live Mail displays Russian and Chinese correctly, but when sent to printer, most of them garble the characters. i dont want to delve into each printer hardware, so am hoping this is a problem with Win 7 encoding somewhere ? ive seen options in Live Mail itself, but changing them doesnt help. is there anywhere else in Win 7 itself that can be experimented with ? thanks for any help !

I can't be certain whether it's your printer settings or Windows that's at fault here, so I've posted this link in the hope it may help you.

As a matter of interest, do you have the Russian and Chinese language packs installed? Obviously, you would need Windows 7 Ultimate for the language packs.
