May be need to change font load order:
default font is FreeSans, and otherwise Vera Sans?

Thank you! You have just explained why I have been seeing blanks and rubbish instead of my non-Latin-1 characters! In the last upgrade, Vera Sans seems to have been made default on this machine. Probably my error, but I was following various instructions. I'm using back-x11 with antialiasing, by
the way.

I really think the default font should be FreeSans.

If GNUstep supported falling back to a different font if a glyph was unavailable in the current (default) font, the choice would be less important.
