Bug#264017: xfonts-base: don't hard-code iso8859-1 in short aliases, eg "fixed"
The traditional short font aliases such as "fixed" hard-code the iso8859-1
encoding. Thus, applications that use these aliases don't work in non
iso-8859-1 locales. If the aliases were changed to use a * for the
encoding, they would be useful in these locales.
I realize there may be tradition or robustness rationales for leaving the
encoding hard-coded, so I understand if you cannot take this suggestion.
