This looks as if your specification of the fontset does not take
effect. Please type `M-x describe-face RET default RET'. What does
the output say in the line "Font or fontset: ..."?

If you type `M-x describe-fontset RET', does Emacs offer you your
fontset ("fontset-shane") for completion? If so, then at least your
changes to .Xdefault took effect. If not, please type 
"xrdb ~/.Xdefaults" at an xterm (or what ever shell you use under X)
and start Emacs again.

Are you per chance overriding your settings somewhere? For example
have you customized your default face? Or did you set it in your
.emacs? Is there nothing else in .Xdefaults concerning fonts in Emacs?
