What does this have to do with XFree86 exactly?  I miss that part...

Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-06-24 16:13:22 UTC
Reassigning to kbd, not an XFree86 problem.

Comment 4 Christian Tosta 2003-08-30 06:02:07 UTC
According XFree86 XKB developers, problem can be the console font used.

Comment 5 Eido Inoue 2004-02-27 01:59:09 UTC
our console font has space for only a limited amount of characters. we
have to compromise and choose the unicode font with the most amount of
coverage. the workaround is to change the console font in
/etc/sysconfig or to use a GUI if you need a wider font range than
what the text console can provide.
