It's already in the man pages - the "Font Names" section appears in the
fonts.conf man page.   (I know it's not easy to find - took me a while
to find it when I was looking for references to add to the man pages of
the X programs that use Xft, which is why I sprinkled it around those,
to make it easier for users:

     Xdm can be compiled with support for the Xft(3) library  for
     font rendering.   If this support is present, font faces are
     specified using the resources with names ending in  ``face''
     in  the  fontconfig  face format described in the Font Names
     section of fonts.conf(4).  If not, then fonts are  specified
     using  the  resources  with  names ending in ``font'' in the
     traditional X Logical Font Description format  described  in
     the Font Names section of X(5).

Those are the Solaris/SysV section references - should be fonts.conf(5)
on BSD/Linux I think.)
