bug#14647: 24.3.50; doc of `set-face-font'

From: Drew Adams
Subject: bug#14647: 24.3.50; doc of `set-face-font'
Date: Mon, 17 Jun 2013 20:46:06 -0700 (PDT)

1. Neither the Elisp manual (node `Attribute Functions') nor the doc
string says what form the string FONT must or may take.

2. The manual says that this command sets the :font attribute.  The doc
string says instead that it sets attributes :family, :foundry, :width,
:height, :weight, and :slant.  Which is it?

3. #1 is all the more imporatnt because the doc string of `x-list-fonts'
says that it returns a list of strings that are "suitable as arguments
to `set-face-font'.  Really?  Just what kind of strings are so suitable?

I think, but am not sure, that FONT must be in XLFD form.  Whatever the
acceptable form(s), the doc needs to spell this out.
