+univga-font (unicode terminal font)
+UNI-VGA is a Unicode VGA font for X11 and console. It is primarily
+intended to be the single source of fonts for console and for XDosEmu.
+One of the aims while creating the font was its internal consistency. For
+example, accented glyphs shouldn't differ too much from unaccented ones,
+as it was in original IBM's VGA font. It also allowed to render Latin
+Extended Additional glyphs with two accents, which was impossible with
+IBM's accents' size.
+X11 calls the font "-bolkhov-vga-medium-r-normal--16-160-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1"
+and an alias called "univga" is added, so you can say e.g. "xterm -fn univga".
+Also 3 varieties of the font are installed for use with the Linux console:
+AsianCyr-vga-8x16, WinCyr-vga-8x16, and UniCyrX-vga-8x16. They can be
+used in /etc/rc.d/rc.font, but won't show up in the setconsolefont menu.
