The fontconfig configuration files 60-latin.conf, 65-nonlatin.conf, and several others contain lists of preferred font families broken down by serif, sans-serif, and monospace. Since there are therefore several lists of preferred sans-serif families,
how are these different lists applied when a font description of say "sans 12" is used? We have lots of cases of English mixed with Eastern languages, so I would like to really understand this.
That's one specific question. More generally, does anyone know a book (or other information source) that goes into real detail on the fontconfig system from a user perspective? The so-called "User's Manual" on the fontconfig website is a joke.
