Yes. XEmacs is intelligent enough to deal with non-US-ASCII locales
on a character set by character set basis. X11 is not. If XEmacs is
displaying the way you want, then you have two options. (1) Complete
the fontset by supplying font specs (separated by commas) that can be
fulfilled for all of the "character sets" that Xlib expects according
to your locale. Unfortunately, if you have a UTF-8 locale in XFree86,
there's a catch-22 that makes it impossible AFAICT. In that case try
solution (2), "live with the warning until we have Xft support." :-(
If it's not displaying the way you expect, please be more explicit
about what you're seeing and what you want to see.
