Package: defoma
Version: 0.11.5
Severity: normal

-- System Information:
Debian Release: testing/unstable
Architecture: i386
Kernel: Linux tea 2.4.21-ow2 #6 SMP 三 10月 22 12:14:24 EDT 2003 i686
Locale: LANG=zh_TW.Big5, LC_CTYPE=zh_TW.Big5

Versions of packages defoma depends on:
ii  dialog                   0.9b-20031002-1 Displays user-friendly dialog boxe
ii  file                     4.06-1          Determines file type using "magic"
ii  perl                     5.8.1-2         Larry Wall's Practical Extraction 
ii  whiptail                 0.51.4-18       Displays user-friendly dialog boxe

-- no debconf information

When a TrueType font is added using defoma, I can type in alias names in Chinese
(which defoma accepts). However, during runtime, defoma will generate errors
(warnings?) in the form

   Fontconfig error: "/var/lib/defoma/fontconfig.d/fonts.conf", line 43: not well-formed (invalid token)

When I open the fonts.conf file and check the line in question, I find that the
line just contains the Chinese font name between <family> and </family>.

Note that the Chinese font name is encoded in the charset specified by the locale
(in this case Big5) instead of in UTF-8, which is probably why fontconfig thinks
the line is not well-formed.
