Well, within the font dialog I do see a bold variant for Lucida
Console. It doesn't show for every font, therefore I thought it was
meaningful. It I choose it, some faces will be bold, some not. BTW,
the font dialog doesn't show all the True Type fonts I have on the
system, whilst they work if passed to set-default-font; some fonts are
shown yet they don't work; therefore I think font support in GNU Emacs
Win32 is not full.

Well, at least on Windows we have a font dialog, whilst on Linux I had
to investigate what fonts were available using other tools, then
passing their string-ized specification to set-default-font. Not
funny.

Thank you all for your kind replies
