Привет всём! Well, there was a post about this two years ago that was quite informative. Вот: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11468993/%D0%AD%D1%82%D0%BE-%D0%B8-%D0%AD%D1%82%D0%BE%D1%82-and-%D0%B4%D0%B5%D0%BD%D1%8C

Я не знаю, что за B4%D0% etc.. .. Но работает.

It's just the Cyrillic title not converted properly from a multi-byte code page, as Peter594672 indicated. This https://www.duolingo.com/comment/11468993/ would work as a link, too.

Yup. Named after one of the two Byzantine monks who adopted Greek alphabet to code Slavic languages.

I think это neutral, этот masculine, эта feminine, эти plural. These are possible: nominative, accusative, genitive, dative

"Это" - Neutral gender, or if you dont know gender "это плохо", "это так" "Этот" - Male gender, "этот пёс" And "Эта" is a female gender.
