yes, I have that:

$ xlsfonts | grep lucida-bold-r-normal-sans-14-140-75-75-p-92-iso8859   

Ok, I now know what's the problem:

$ grep ^lucidasans-10 /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/fonts.alias
lucidasans-10 -b&h-lucida-medium-r-normal-sans-10-100-75-75-p-58-iso8859-15

$ xlsfonts | grep lucida-medium-r-normal-sans-10-100-75-75-p-58-iso8859

The lucidasans-10 that I use is alias to iso8859-15, but I only have
iso8859-1 fonts installed. How can I fix that, the Debian way? 

I mean, I deliberately change my system language from iso8859-15 to
iso8859-1, how can I make changes to fonts also? 

thanks a lot
