 Yes.  But a quick piece of testing shows that 'Monospace' is the
magic name for getting whatever is available from TTFs.  Thanks for

 I suppose I misled myself earlier by trying to use Luxi Mono as a
preference - Monospace is finding pretty much everything in my test
data except some of the arabic glyphs, must be I don't have them in
mono.  With a more recent Freefont it all looks a lot better
(unfortunately, I had to build fontforge to create the TTFs but now
they're in a tarball).
