Display Tables

   You can use the "display table" feature to control how all 256
possible character codes display on the screen.  This is useful for
displaying European languages that have letters not in the ASCII
character set.

   The display table maps each character code into a sequence of
"glyphs", each glyph being an image that takes up one character
position on the screen.  You can also define how to display each glyph
on your terminal, using the "glyph table".
