[Grml] uxterm unicode problem - part 2

Hello people,

I have made some progress with displaying non-english characters in uxterm.
I've tried to run uxterm:
  uxterm -fn '-misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1'
and it worked !

Furthermore, I found (u)xterm's definitions (aliases) of tiny, small,
medium, .... font sizes (look for 'resizing-fu') here:
~/.zshrc, /etc/skel/.zshrc
and I've replaced '-iso8859-15' with '-iso10646-1'.
But what a surprise ! It did nothing, even after PC reboot :-(

Is there a font-search utility so that I can dynamically see list of
existing fonts when changing/clearing attributes ? Because it seems to
me that there are no corresponding fonts for iso10646-1 and so the
nearest alternative is taken, which is iso8859-15, with one exception

Best regards,
M. Rehak
