Package: xterm
Version: 229-1

Some very common Chinese characters, e.g., the first of
$ echo 絕對|
perl -C -nwe 'use Unicode::Normalize q(decompose); print decompose($_)'
絕對

are missing from what font xterm uses, and are as shown above, not
z-variants.

(Of course I'm not sure what font it is using. Maybe it is this in ~/.Xresources
*VT100.font:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--18-120-100-100-c-90-iso10646-1 )

Anyway, in this day and age common characters should be all filled in.

Sorry I recall several years ago I mentioned this but am not sure what happened.

works for me with TrueType fontsets, which are incorporated in the current
release of Debian (xterm-344 for instance).

All I can say is, it still doesn't work.
