LOADFONT(1) General Commands Manual LOADFONT(1)NAME
loadfont - load a font into the video card
loadfont iso1.fnt # Loads the ISO 8859-1 (Latin-1) font
Loadfont loads a custom font into the video card (EGA or VGA). The font character size has to be 8x16 pixels and the font file must con-
tain 256 characters for a total size of 4 kilobytes.
Loadfont together with loadkeys allow the console and keyboard to be customized to national conventions.
If it exists, the file /etc/font is loaded as a custom font by /etc/rc at boot time.

UNICODE_START(1) General Commands Manual UNICODE_START(1)NAME
unicode_start - put keyboard and console in unicode mode
unicode_start [font [umap]]
The unicode_start command will put the keyboard and console into Unicode (UTF-8) mode.
For the keyboard this means that one can attach 16-bit U+xxxx values to keyboard keys using loadkeys(1), and have these appear as UTF-8
input to user programs. Also, that one can type hexadecimal Alt-xxxx using the numeric keypad, and again produce UTF-8.
For the console this means that the kernel expects UTF-8 output from user programs, and displays the output accordingly.
The parameter font is a font that is loaded. It should have a built-in Unicode map, or, if it hasn't, such a map can be given explicitly as
second parameter. When no font was specified, the current font is kept.
Unicode mode is a parameter with a value per virtual console. However, usually the font and keymap is common to all consoles.
