This looks promising, so I installed it.  In
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/, I've had so far my old font (well, I
*think* that this is what's loaded by the above Elisp command):

10x20-ISO8859-1.pcf.gz   10x20-ISO8859-16.pcf.gz  10x20-ISO8859-8.pcf.gz
10x20-ISO8859-10.pcf.gz  10x20-ISO8859-2.pcf.gz   10x20-ISO8859-9.pcf.gz
10x20-ISO8859-11.pcf.gz  10x20-ISO8859-3.pcf.gz   10x20-KOI8-R.pcf.gz
10x20-ISO8859-13.pcf.gz  10x20-ISO8859-4.pcf.gz   10x20.pcf.gz
10x20-ISO8859-14.pcf.gz  10x20-ISO8859-5.pcf.gz
10x20-ISO8859-15.pcf.gz  10x20-ISO8859-7.pcf.gz

Now, there is also

ter-114b.pcf.gz  ter-528n.pcf.gz  ter-d24b.pcf.gz  ter-k16n.pcf.gz
ter-114n.pcf.gz  ter-532b.pcf.gz  ter-d24n.pcf.gz  ter-k20b.pcf.gz
ter-116b.pcf.gz  ter-532n.pcf.gz  ter-d28b.pcf.gz  ter-k20n.pcf.gz
ter-116n.pcf.gz  ter-914b.pcf.gz  ter-d28n.pcf.gz  ter-k24b.pcf.gz
ter-120b.pcf.gz  ter-914n.pcf.gz  ter-d32b.pcf.gz  ter-k24n.pcf.gz
ter-120n.pcf.gz  ter-916b.pcf.gz  ter-d32n.pcf.gz  ter-k28b.pcf.gz
ter-124b.pcf.gz  ter-916n.pcf.gz  ter-f14b.pcf.gz  ter-k28n.pcf.gz
ter-124n.pcf.gz  ter-920b.pcf.gz  ter-f14n.pcf.gz  ter-k32b.pcf.gz
...

fonts.dir is updated, and the X server restarted.  But what to put
in .emacs? For example, (set-default-font "ter-114n") doesn't work.

Tschoe,
Torsten.
