BTW, have you read these pages.
For example, to enable nice large display of English, Russian, Japanese,
Chinese, and Korean characters, add following to your ~/.Xresources after
installing all the pertinent fonts:
! set large font
! Use XIM for Japanese
Then run xrdb -merge ~/.Xresources to update X resources as described in X
Set to a larger font looks better.
