Yes, "cat > foo" works, russian letters appears in "foo" file. But I realize, that it is used Ansi codepage, not OEM. This does not matter for me, but is this right?

Confirmed here too, cat sends ANSI bytes to the file even though current code page in cmd.exe is 850. If you then cat the file however, for some crazy reason, as discussed in the other thread, it now translates from ANSI to OEM.
