Well, when I mentioned this, this were all the options.  ;-) But
meanwhile I tested it with -no-site-file too.

How would I find it?

Hmm, do not remember seeing this message...

OK, *this* I can do remotely.  ;-)  Done:

name:  -cronyx-courier-bold-o-normal--10-100-75-75-m-60-iso8859-5
  direction:            left to right
  indexing:             linear
  rows:                 0x00 thru 0x00 (0 thru 0)
  columns:              0x20 thru 0xff (32 thru 255)
  all chars exist:      no
  default char:         0x0020 (32)
  ascent:               13
  descent:              3
  font type:            Monospaced (font width not equal to AVERAGE_WIDTH)
  bounds:               width left  right  asc  desc   attr   keysym
        min               10    -1    -1    -1   -11  0x0000
        max               10     7    14    12     3  0x0000
  properties:           21
      SPACING               M
      FOUNDRY               Cronyx
      FAMILY_NAME           Courier
      WEIGHT_NAME           Bold
      SLANT                 O
      SETWIDTH_NAME         Normal
      AVERAGE_WIDTH         60
      PIXEL_SIZE            10
      POINT_SIZE            100
      RESOLUTION_X          75
      RESOLUTION_Y          75
      COPYRIGHT             Copyright (C) 1990, 1991 EWT Consulting, Portions Co
pyright (C) 1994 Cronyx Ltd.
      WEIGHT                10
      RESOLUTION            132
      X_HEIGHT              13
      QUAD_WIDTH            10

Etc.  A lot of them...  In fact there are 3 fonts which have
CHARSET_REGISTRY ISO8859, they have FOUNDRY ETL.  How do I convince
emacs to use them in preference to FOUNDRY Cronyx ones?

BTW, why -etl-fixed-medium-r-normal--16-160-72-72-c-80-iso8859-5 is
not prefered to the other guy automatically?  What are the criteria?


What can a sysadm do to fix this misconfiguration of thinking that
rawin-r is iso8859-5 (if it is one)?
