* Characters from the mule-unicode charsets aren't displayed under X.
XFree86 4 contains many fonts in iso10646-1 encoding which have
minimal character repertoires (whereas the encoding is meant to be a
reasonable indication of the repertoire). Emacs may choose one of
these to display characters from the mule-unicode charsets and then
typically won't be able to find the glyphs to display many characters.
(Check with C-u C-x = .) To avoid this, you may need to use a fontset
which sets the font for the mule-unicode sets explicitly. E.g. to use
GNU unifont, include in the fontset spec:
mule-unicode-2500-33ff:-gnu-unifont-*-iso10646-1,\
mule-unicode-e000-ffff:-gnu-unifont-*-iso10646-1,\
mule-unicode-0100-24ff:-gnu-unifont-*-iso10646-1
