ISO-8859-1 fonts in Mac-Emacs ?

I'm using Mac-Emacs (GNU Emacs (powerpc-apple-darwin6.0) on MacOS 10.2.1, and having little luck getting it to display ISO-8859-1 characters.

A modified Monoco font, as described in the Mac-Emacs OSX FAQ at, does display ISO-8859-1 characters; unfortunately it is too small for my 60-year-old eyes. I have been unable to get any other font to work for ISO-8859-1 characters. I downloaded the GNU intlfonts modified for Mac-Emacs, but found no information on where to put them or how to configure Mac-Emacs to use them. I also tried downloading the intlfonts distribution and the package that is supposed to modify them for Mac-Emacs OSX; it seems to require a tool (MPW) which is not part of MacOS 10.2.1 or the developer-tools.

I would very much welcome suggestions or a step-by-step on how to get ISO-8859-1 fonts -- even one font larger than 9pt -- working on Mac-Emacs. Thanks,

Ronald Florence
