Thank you. This worked. But I found another problem
(related to #548?). I report it in a separate report.

It seems that there is a wrong font table for the italic version of this font, it doesn't contain correct Unicode characters. Moreover, it can just reference the wncyr.htf font table that we fixed recently, as they use the same characters.

Put the following file, wnti.htf to the directory with your TeX file:

htfcss: wnti font-style: italic;

If you have updated TeX Live, it should use the corrected wncyr.htf, and it should produce right Cyrillic characters.

The following source results an error (as shown below).
If I use \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptm}, this error
does not occur, but I have a problem with italics
in the literature section (ID #548).


% \renewcommand{\rmdefault}{ptm}



\textit{\selectlanguage{russian}ABV\selectlanguage{english} -- ABC}


The error is
