The problem of the glyph fallback has been already discussed on the  
list, but in the context of Pango.

We have a QT application


used to display historical texts with a lot of ligatures and some PUA  
characters form Medieval Unicode Font Initiative. If the user  
incidentally selects an improper font, then fallback creates quite a  



there is a statement:

"there are no way to do that in fontconfig so far and a RFE is
in Bugzilla long while."

There is still no way to do it in fontconfig?

Which RFE is referred to in the post?

I would appreciate very much your comments and suggestions.

Best regards
