It is a bit daunting and long. It should be backward compatible though.

        Load the correct font for characters that have the 'Unicode'
        script assigned to them (e.g. the em-dash).
        Fix exact match for raw mode fonts.
        Fix conversion from Unicode to GB2312 to make Chinese appear
        correctly again when using xlfd fonts.


Added support for Xft2 client side fonts on X servers without the
RENDER extension.

Fixed skipping of certain (bitmap) fonts for Xft2 when building up the
font database.
