ACM stands for Application Character Map.  It contains the mapping from 8-bit
codes into unicode.

console-tools package contains the code that allows to maintain this.  If I understand
correctly, it is ioctl (PIO_UNISCRNMAP).

At the moment, I am making use of the following command to accomplish correct
image on the screen:

    consolechars -f font-name -m acm-name

Maybe, there is a simpler way to make the same thing, but this is the way I
do not know of. :)
