yep.

Do you have (foser and you) some kind of research directions for this font
problem?

I've noticed in the thread :

-changing default by configuring fontconfig better : be carefull of subjective
way of doing this, and avoid crashing non western font rendering

-writing documentation : what is the dubject : only fontconfig configuration?
 how to avoid transformation in long and useless doc?

btw I changed the subject. I hope I didn't break the thread for mail reader
that don't look at references
