 Could you change the XLFD for Microsoft's "Codepages" :

. microsoft - CHARSET_REGISTRY, registration authority that owns
      specified encoding
. cp1251    - CHARSET_ENCODING, registered name that identifies the
      coded character set as defined by that registration authority

I only sugest using this name for XLFD glyph encodings.  I do not
suggest using it for any other purpose.

AV>  Could you point out any standarts for this name ?

This was chosen by mutual agreement between me, the X-TT developers,
and the Wine developers.  It is not standard.

AV>  Why not "cp1251".

Because XLFD glyph encoding names need to be of the form

  <registry>-<encoding>

i.e. two fields separated with a dash (`-').
