Ok, I've read 'Early results with multi lingual fontconfig names' also.
I've confirmed with '$ fc-list : family familylang | grep ,' that
previous mentioned font tagged with 'familylang=en,ja,ja' properly.

As a first step, I'd know if fontconfig has option that I can specify
codeset of each languages (even on same language code) other than
assuming themselves to UTF-8!? in inner fontname-wise.

There seems few documents about family/style/fullnamelang. Could
you tell me the right direction?

PS. I've forgoten, version of fontconfig is 2.2.99 on IRIX 6.5.
