NAME
       mdbFontEncoding - Font Encoding

DESCRIPTION
       The m17n	library	loads information about	the encoding of	each font form
       the m17n	database by the	tags <font, encoding>. The data	is loaded as a
       plist of	this format.

       FONT-ENCODING ::= PER-FONT *

       PER-FONT	::= '('	FONT-SPEC ENCODING [ REPERTORY ] ')'

       FONT-SPEC ::=
	   '(' [ FOUNDRY FAMILY
	      [	WEIGHT [ STYLE [ STRETCH [ ADSTYLE ]]]]]
	    REGISTRY ')'

       ENCODING	::= SYMBOL

       FONT-SPEC is to specify properties of a font. FOUNDRY to	REGISTRY are
       symbols corresponding to	Mfoundry to Mregistry property of a font. See
       m17nFont	for the	meaning	of each	property.

       For instance, this FONT-SPEC:

	   (nil	alice0 lao iso8859-1)

       should be applied to all	fonts whose family name	is 'alice0 lao', and
       registry	is 'iso8859-1'.

       ENCODING	is a symbol representing a charset. A font matching FONT-SPEC
       supports	all characters of the charset, and a character code is mapped
       to the corresponding glyph code of the font by this charset.

       REPERTORY is a symbol representing a charset or 'nil'. Omitting it is
       the same	as specifying ENCODING as REPERTORY. If	it is not 'nil', the
       charset specifies the repertory of the font, i.e, which character it
       supports. Otherwise, whether a specific character is supported by the
       font or not is asked to each font driver.

       For so called Unicode fonts (registry is	'iso10646-1'), it is
       recommended to specify 'nil' as REPERTORY because such fonts usually
       supports	only a subset of Unicode characters.
