Dear Alain,

At the end of this email, I am including one of my oldish test files for
Cyrillic, if it might be of some use to you.

I do not know how to find a complete table with the latex commands for the
cyrillic alphabets. Perhaps it can be extracted (typeset) from our
TeX Live distribution. I can see some vague instructions with

$texdoc cyrillic One can see the OT2 commands for the cyrrilic letters in ot2.pdf, by:$ texdoc ot2

AMSFonts might be suitable for only few words in other languages in a
large document, but I have not tried them for Cyrillic. The commands

$texdoc amsfndoc$ texdoc amsfonts

output User’s Guide to AMSFonts Version 2.2d, but the package is actually
Version 3.00, as can be seen by issuing:

\$ texdoc AMSFonts

The following is my test file:
======
\documentclass{article}
%\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} %% activate the Russian Phonetic keyboard
%% use the Show Keyboard Viewer
%\usepackage[ot2enc]{inputenc} %% take this off with the Russian keyboard
\usepackage[OT2]{fontenc}      %% take this off with the Russian keyboard

\usepackage[bulgarian,russian,english]{babel}
\begin{document}

\selectlanguage{russian}

Tuk!

%Тук! %% Russian Phonetic keyboard activated

Zdes\cyrsftsn{}!

Tablitsa

%Здесь! %% Russian Phonetic keyboard activated

\selectlanguage{english}

Table

\cyr{Tablitsa}

\cyra, \cyrb, \cyrv, \cyrg, \cyrzh, ..., \CYRA, \CYRB, \CYRV, \CYRG,
\CYRZH,

\cyrhrdsn, \CYRHRDSN,

\cyrsftsn, \CYRSFTSN,

\u{i}, \U{i}

\end{document}
