(1) As Shawn Steele noted, you should use Unicode (UTF-8 or UTF-16).
If this is a web application, probably UTF-8 is the best choice (just
as Wikipedia does). For thick clients, UTF-16 is often used -- but it
your OS and application framework.
(2) The Letter Database at the Institute of the Estonian Language is a
great resource for determining which letters are needed for spcific
Latin and, in your case, Cyrillic orthographies:
For example, here's the query for Kazakh using Cyrillic:
This information can be useful in choosing the right fonts, setting up
CSS font directives, etc.
