decode_coding calls produce_annotation that calls produce_charset,
which puts the 'charset' text property on the decoded text.

Then font_for_char uses this property to get the charset ID with which
it calls fontset_font, which in turn calls fontset_find_font, which
prefers fonts whose repertory matches that ID.

The documentation of fontset stuff could use a lot of improvement.
