XListFonts can't find jisx0201.1976-0 fontsbut they are there

try this on a Sun with Solaris 2.4:

these both fail to find any matches:

   xlsfonts -fn '-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-jisx0201.1976-0'
   xfontsel -pattern '-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-jisx0201.1976-0'

but xfontsel _will_ find matches if you just start it with no args
and interactively pick the above XLFD encoding.
i know from using xmon traces
that the interactive way uses XOpenFont/XQueryFont directly, whereas
the command line arg uses XListFonts.

So, why does XListFonts fail and not XOpenFont? ANy ideas who at Sun
i should send this to?

(btw, using upper/lower case for the XLFD string or running all this
in C or ja locales do not affect the results)

1. Looking for information on ANSI X3.28-1976 2.3/A4 support in Linux

I am about to begin working on a project that interfaces with an external
peripheral, which is a telephony platform. The problem is not controlling
the peripheral, which is well documented and uses an RS232 interface, but
with the manner in which communications is carried out over the RS232. The
link uses an ANSI X3.28-1976 2.3/A4 spec (or protocol?).

Is anyone familiar with ANSI X3.28 or know if someone has already created a
way to support this with Linux?
