Change the ordering to suit!
Monospace fonts contain characters that all have the same character width, producing text that can be used to create forms, tabular material or documents that require exact text line lengths.
!!! Miscellaneous Technical Notes
In the <tt>fonts.dir</tt> file, you can point different encodings (charsets) to the same physical file, __BUT ONLY FOR SCALABLE FONTS__. I spent quite a while trying to determine why my characters were wrong when I tried to do this for a bitmap font (eg a 75dpi one). It is the scalable font backends that do the magic here, not X itself.
