I've been using NT Emacs 20.4 for a long time with a decent fixed size font

The font has an invalid character set field, that is why Emacs will not
use it by default. Emacs 21.3 expects to see a Latin-1 font for the
default font. You can work around this by creating a fontset based on
that font:

(setq my-font (create-fontset-from-ascii-font "BROKEN_FONT_NAME"))

(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist `(font . ,myfont))

Since that font appears to have been converted from an X font by some
conversion program, perhaps you could find out who wrote the conversion
program and contact them about writing a valid character set entry in
the fonts they are producing.
