I use emacs that I compiled --with-carbon --without-x on macosx Panther. The default fontset is too small for my eyes and I want a courier font and latin-1 characters so I set about finding out what to do:

Here's what I found:

;; To print my french accents rather than ugly squares:
(set-language-environment "Latin-1")
;; To be able to type in my nice accents:
(set-keyboard-coding-system 'mac-roman)
;; To have the right fontset
(create-fontset-from-fontset-spec "-apple-courier-medium-r-normal--14-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-courier,ascii:-apple-courier-medium-r-normal--14-140-75-75-m-140-mac-roman,latin-iso8859-1:-apple-courier-medium-r-normal--14-140-75-75-m-140-mac-roman")

Now it's the last line that I have queries about. How do I define a fontset? Under X I imagine I would use xfontsel to make it up, but how do I do it on macosx? I stole this particular fontset defintion string by doing M-x describe-fontset on 'Enhanced Emacs for MacOS X' (which I don't want on my computer because it's 150Mb), but how do I make up my own? I would like my font to be a bit larger than 14pt, so I tried to blindingly fiddle with it (like changing 14 to 16), but with no success.

Thanks for any pointer.
