This package makes the fonts of the package scalable-cyrfonts
available to the X server.  Via fonts.alias it provides scalable
analogues to the fonts in the packages xfonts-bolkhov and
xfonts-cronyx.  This package does not contain any fonts itself but
only symbolic links to the fonts from the package scalable-cyrfonts.

Please note that for proper reencoding into different Cyrillic
encodings this package requires capable X server or font server.  This
means that you have to use the modular X server from the package
xserver-xfree86.  If you had to use some of the old X servers, you
should make these fonts available to the X server via font server.

Note also that the Unicode support for Type1 fonts of the `type1'
backend of XFree86 is quiet limited.  If you need proper Unicode
support you will have to use the `freetype' backend of XFree86 version
4.3 or next.
