Consolechars Doubt

        I am a student trying to develop a PSF file for supporting a
Regional language. For some characters, I need to have multiple glyphs,
as console doesnt support variable width fonts. We can have a keymap to do
this , but this actually generates multiple ASCII values and hence wont be
compatible with other existing ttf/bdf fonts available for X, where there
is only one ASCII code for a character.

        Can we have a 1 to many mapping from ASCII values to
glyphs in the PSF/ACM file ? (ie. , can we have multiple glyphs displayed
for same key pressed?) If this support is not present , what are the
changes/ configurations that we need to do to support this?
