The Intlfonts 1.2 distribution comes with Type1 and TrueType ISO-8859-[1-5] 
fonts (they are from Yannis Haralambous, so they must be good ;-).  
However, ISO-8859-8 is not yet part of that distribution.  You can get 
Intlfonts 1.2 from the GNU FTP site.

I think Emacs can use these fonts right now.

Handa-san, do you happen to know if there's a newer Intlfonts 
distribution somewhere which includes more ttf fonts?

Also, this reminds me: wasn't Emacs 21 supposed to come with ps-type1.el?
