Doesn't it mean that an application program anyway have to
do fine tuning over fontconfig?

By the way, I've just installed another fix for Xft
font-backend so that fontconfig's setting takes effect.

With the latest code,  when I have this in ~/.fonts.conf:

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM "fonts.dtd">
 <match target="pattern">
   <test name="family">
     <string>AR PL SungtiL GB</string>
   <edit name="antialias" mode="assign">

and set han script code as this:

 '("AR PL SungtiL GB" . "iso10646-1"))

Chinese characters are dispalyed without antialias.
