You remember correctly :) Basically, conversion from
Cyrillc to Latin alphabet
is possible and easy to do; but conversion from Latin to Cyrillic is
impossible task. It would thus be possible to create a static Wikipedia
mirror in Latin alphabet, if there would be any need for it; but making it
editable and importing results back into Cyrillic would not work and only
If converting Cyrillic -> Latin is good enough, and the primary editing
environment is going to be Cyrillic, then adapting zhengzhu's Chinese
conversion support probably will work okay.
you'll notice three additional tabs at the
right-hand of the top tab bar: "不转换" for unconverted display, "简体"
for simplified conversion, and "繁体" for traditional conversion. These
conversions don't change the source text or alter editing; it's for
rendered page display and user interface only.
We could have the 'Cyrillic' display just pass through the source
unaltered, and the 'Latin' display go ahead and apply the conversions in
one direction for display only.
