For example, with U+2026 HORIZONTAL ELLIPSIS. If I type one in an Emacs buffer, I get the character from my normal font:

*font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-*-*

whereas if I have one on the X clipboard and paste it (e.g. button-2), then I get a wider character, but if I go into hexl-mode I can see it's the same character code, though annoyingly it's not on the baseline (so there's also a bug in whatever font is being used, but I'm not sure which font is being used).

I looked at that code point in all my fonts, and found the exact character diplayed in


Is there any reason that font might have been used when I was pasting from the clipboard rather than the default face, mentioned above?

In my custom.el I have:

'(default ((t (:stipple nil :background "black" :foreground "white" :inverse-video nil :box nil :strike-through nil :overline nil :underline nil :slant normal :weight normal :height 120 :width semi-condensed :family "misc-fixed"))))

i.e. the same font as listed from my .Xresources file, in Emacs notation.
