Oh, no...  I don't think that regedit can "know" anything about codepages :),
and there is _no_ info about this in registry... If your registry have same
setup for 1251 and koi8-r, than your registry was set up incorrectly...
Koi-8 is _very_ different from any other russian charset...
Moreother, (russian) letters in koi-8 arranged non-alphabetically, unlike
in cp866 and 1251 and others.
