Thanks Hans,

And thanks to everyone else in the thread.  This has been most
educational and I am inspired to learn more about elisp!

I think for now I will just put Hans' code in my system-dependent
section of my EMACS file:

(when (eq system-type 'darwin)
  (setq ispell-program-name "/usr/local/bin/ispell")
  (set-frame-font "fontset-mac")
  (set-keyboard-coding-system 'mac-roman-unix)
  (set-frame-font "-etl-fixed-medium-r-normal--14-140-75-75-m-140-iso8859-1")
  (modify-frame-parameters (selected-frame) '((font .


If I run into any other problems,  I'll probably have to go with
something more along the lines of launching EMACS through a shell
