setfont will accept font descriptions like
# combine partial fonts none.00-17.16 ascii.20-7f.16 none.00-17.16 8859-1.a0-ff.16where the first line is precisely
# combine partial fontsand the remaining lines contain filenames for PSF fonts to load. The above example (it is the file
iso01.16) describes a font with 256 positions, of which the first 32 are taken from the file
none.00-17.16, the following 96 from
ascii.20-7f.16, the following 32 from
none.00-17.16again, and the final 96 from
8859-1.a0-ff.16. In this way all ISO 8859-* fonts of a given pointsize (here 16) can share the same initial 160 positions.
