       unicode_start [font [umap]]


       The  unicode_start  command will put the keyboard and con­
       sole into Unicode (UTF-8) mode.

       For the keyboard this means that  one  can  attach  16-bit
       U+xxxx values to keyboard keys using loadkeys(1), and have
       these appear as UTF-8 input to user programs.  Also,  that
       one  can  type hexadecimal Alt-xxxx using the numeric key­
       pad, and again produce UTF-8.

       For the console this means that the kernel  expects  UTF-8
       output from user programs, and displays the output accord­

       The parameter font is a font that  is  loaded.  It  should
       have  a built-in Unicode map, or, if it hasn't, such a map
       can be given explicitly as second parameter.  When no font
       was specified, some default font is loaded.


       Unicode  mode is a parameter with a value per virtual con­
       sole.  However, usually the font and keymap is  common  to
       all consoles.
