Re: GNU emacs fonts again

Thanks, but no... This wasn't my question.
In fact, I do have the package installed and up to date.
Now, GNU emacs seemed to use it and doesn't anymore.
I didn't change my settings.
But, I liked the Lucida Sans Typewriter font on some unix in the past.
It doesn't look at all so nice on my Vista box under cygwin.
Different screen probably.
Besides, there used to be some issues with the completeness of the full
Support for some characters in some combinations... bold italic...
Or just some non-standard naming that made some transitions fail... italic
that was named oblique...
I don't remember.
I am not sure it affected me anymore lately.
It did in the past when I used to run the w3 emacs browser.
The point is that I lack a wider perspective to know what it the optimal
and thus to make a precise question.
So far, it seems like how to tell emacs to get its default font narrower?
How come is the medium Courier wider than the bold one?
Isn't this an error?
I can start emacs with:
/usr/bin/emacs -fn lucidasanstypewriter-10
- gives a setup in which the system font is unreadable (blocks).
I know there must be an FAQ about that...
- it doesn't look especially good (thick 'i's and '-'s)
The list-fontsets function gives:
BTW... lucidasanstypewriter-8 seems to find equivalents for the system.
It is not nicer looking though.
