              gc, int x, int y, char *string, int num_bytes);

       void XwcDrawString(Display *display, Drawable d, XFontSet font_set, GC
              gc, int x, int y, wchar_t *string, int num_wchars);

       void Xutf8DrawString(Display *display, Drawable d, XFontSet font_set,
              GC gc, int x, int y, char *string, int num_bytes);

ARGUMENTS
       d         Specifies the drawable.

       display   Specifies the connection to the X server.

       font_set  Specifies the font set.

       gc        Specifies the GC.

DESCRIPTION
       The XmbDrawString, XwcDrawString and Xutf8DrawString functions draw the
       specified text with the foreground pixel.  When the XFontSet has miss-
       ing charsets, each unavailable character is drawn with the default
       string returned by XCreateFontSet.  The behavior for an invalid code-
       point is undefined.

       The function Xutf8DrawString is an extension introduced by The XFree86
       Project, Inc. in their 4.0.2 release. Its presence is indicated by the
       macro X_HAVE_UTF8_STRING.
