Re: font fix found, but how to make it stick?

While I was considering editing the binary font file (helvB12.pcf.gz),
I noticed a different font file in the same location:


After some inspection, it would seem that many fonts default to
iso10646, but also are available in a iso8859 versions.

What is the "Debian way" to give preference to the iso8859 versions?

I found that simply deleting the iso10646 version (helvB12.pcf.gz)
and then doing a update-fonts-dir does work.

BUT -- I think as soon as package xfonts-75dpi is upgraded, it will
undo the fix...

If i run xfontsel, i can pick "fmly"=helvetica, and "rgstry"=iso10646.
Can you?
