As I said, because 65-non-latin is extremely outdated, and no one try to chance
this situation, plus that you told me it is not good to use prepend_first in
the fontconfig files, then, the only way to by-pass the default font rendering
order is to use a lower number. That's why I named 85-wqy-bitmapfont.conf to

It is really 65-non-latin should be fixed, not wqy-bitmap-fonts.

same as above.

because wqy-bitmap-fonts is not monospaced.
