I like it.

Still one nit to pick:
! @item registry
! @itemx encoding
! These make up the character set that the font depicts.  Note that this
! is different from MULE character sets.  You can use the
! @command{xfontsel} program to check which choices you have.  However,
! normally you should use @samp{iso8859} for @var{registry} and @samp{1}
! for @var{encoding}.

I would say "this is different from MULE charsets" rather than "this
is different from MULE character sets".

Related comment:

I wanted to add some advice about finding out a charset, but no luck.
It's a shame that (at least in XEmacs) there's no convenient way to do
M-: (charset-registry (char-charset (char-after (point)))) RET.  (We
don't even have a `describe-charset', for shame!  Maybe GNU Emacs
does, though.)  Also, it doesn't really give an immediately useful
answer (it's a regexp).  I'll put it on my list, but thought I'd throw
it out in case somebody knows how to do it already.
