I have some questions about emacs internal actions related to charset and fonts shown by
Now I use
utf-8 as character encording scheme (CES) on emacs, so charsets shown by
describe-char are supposed to "unicode". But since I often use Japanese kanji, the following configuration
is added. Then charset of kanjis is changed to "japanese-jisx0208" keeping CES to be
utf-8 like the below (ex.kanji "字").
position: 813 of 2102 (39%), column: 51 character: 字 (displayed as 字) (codepoint 23383, #o55527, #x5b57) preferred charset: japanese-jisx0208 (JISX0208.1983/1990 Japanese Kanji: ISO-IR-87) code point in charset: 0x3B7A script: han syntax: w which means: word category: .:Base, C:2-byte han, L:Left-to-right (strong), c:Chinese, h:Korean, j:Japanese, |:line breakable to input: type "C-x 8 RET 5b57" buffer code: #xE5 #xAD #x97 file code: #xE5 #xAD #x97 (encoded by coding system utf-8-unix) display: by this font (glyph code) xft:-VL -VL Gothic-normal-normal-normal-*-18-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1 (#x15A9) Character code properties: customize what to show name: CJK IDEOGRAPH-5B57 general-category: Lo (Letter, Other) decomposition: (23383) ('字')
utf-8 transforms characters of Unicode to byte codes not "japanese-jisx0208", but the shown charset is "japanese-jisx0208". So I have following two questions.
- Setting language environment of emacs "Japanese", is the encording with
utf-8executed after the shwon charset "japanese-jisx0208" is transformed to "unicode" inside emacs?
- Depending on my first question, why the font of unicode (
-VL Gothic-normal-normal-normal-*-18-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1) is applied?
