Re: some accented chars double width

In Emacs, that's understandable, because it uses core X font protocol, and the
default XLC_LOCALE file tries Latin1, then some Japanese bitmap fonts. In
firefox, this shouldn't happen.
How might I remedy this? How can I tell fontcongig or whatever to
first try Latin extended B before Chinese?
That's not fontconfig! For Emacs, you could try downloading this file:
Russians use it to work around a similar bug with GTK1 apps in the ru_RU.UTF-8
locale, but it might also work for you if you put this into
Or maybe I need to apt-get install more fonts.
For Firefox, yes. Try ttf-dejavu together with fontconfig from unstable.
Please report if this helps.
