About a month ago UTF-8 locale stopped working in my xterm. I fail to find comprehensive documentation on fonts in X11 and therefore I fail to fully understand and trace the problem. I'll be most grateful if somebody leads me to a source of fine docs, but I'm really full of doubt after much googling. README.fonts and manpages are helpful in that they shed some light on how to tune a working setup, but I can't learn the way fonts work from them.
I don't have any fontpaths defined in xorg.conf, I though it wasn't a problem. xfontsel have always shown some 12000 matches, many of which were unicode. Now I try xfontsel - and it only shows matches in default fontpaths until I run xset fp+ on the rest of them. Nevertheless, xterm fails to display russian fonts, and displays only a fraction of the Chinese and Japanese it used to display. A couple of weeks ago I installed a fresh FreeBSD system on another computer - and everything works great there. But my issue is not a singleton, I stumble upon it both at work and at home. I don't use russian in console that much, but I still do occasionally. I have to support file servers with UTF-8 filenames. And I start experiencing some obscure problems with encodings (like, for example, mldonkey is totally freaked out) on other FreeBSD systems, so I really want to sort this out.
