So that machine does not have those fonts. Since this is Windows 98,
the default fonts for the US version are Latin-1 only. There is
another set of default fonts, which used to be available from the MS
website, and is also installed by various MS software packages. This
set supports many more encodings. If you do not look closely, it may
appear that the fonts are the same on both machines, but in the font
selection dialog, you have a "Script" dropdown selection, which will
be different on the machines that work compared to the one that
doesn't.

Only if you set them.

It describes the fontset you specify. But this is a red herring. Emacs
21 displays all characters regardless of whether you use a font or a
fontset. The fontset gives you finer control over which fonts are used
to display which characters.

If you put that in .emacs, it is saved in .emacs. There is nothing
magic going on behind the scenes.
