In Russian Wikisource I was looking at a book, where lists of literature
references contain a mix of Russian and German titles. This book was
OCRed for Russian, so when the print says "Barentz" in Latin letters,
the OCR text says "Вагепгг", which are Cyrillic (Russian) letters that
look similar, but actually transcribe to the nonsense "Vagepgg".
When proofreading such a text in a wiki edit box (using the ProofreadPage
extension, as Wikisource does), it would be a great help if all Cyrillic
letters (a range of Unicode characters) in the edit box could be coloured
different from the Latin ones. Is this possible to achieve with a personal
What I would like is a gadget that allows the user to decide if Unicode
range XX to YY in the edit box should be coloured in ZZ,
Here is a diff link to the page in question,
The large print is the text of an encyclopedic article.
The small print is the list of literature references.
