[protege-discussion] protege with other languages

I am not sure if Manjula has the same,

but my test ontology http://earth.jscc.ru/ontologies/Ontology_sanscrit.owl
(I am sorry for "c")
throws exception on this way:

in Protege 4
1. Open "OWL ontology from URI"
http://earth.jscc.ru/ontologies/Ontology_sanscrit.owl. = OK.
2. go to "Classes" tab and double click "Thing". = I got exception and
interface broken.

to see Sanskrit letters in this ontology use
http://pellet.owldl.com/owlsight/

Is there something wrong with Sanskrit? As with Russian it is OK.
