    Victor, meet Pravetz. Pravetz, meet Victor. Victor, look into the guts of
    the FPOS. See something that resembles CGA. Yup, no friggin' way to change
    the font. Yup, it clashes with pseudo-graphics. Now, for the next member
    of panopticum: ES-1841. Aaarggh...

    Moral: there was a reason why Alt got its name. The whole situation with
    encodings was a mess - I can recall 4 from the top of my head and that's
    before the cp12<something>. OTOH it might be much worse - trust me, you
    don't want to know how the hybrid between RADIX-50 and cyrillic looked

    Now, what I would like to know is the name of person who keeps insisting
    that iso8859-5 is One True Way(tm). May he implement the full OSI stack
    and be forced to use it.
