Hmm. Are they cross-platform? The "Defining fontsets" page in the
Emacs manual talks about X resouces. I'm on Windows, and I don't know
how I'd set up an X resource there.

To give a concrete example, how would I ask Emacs to choose the first
of "Source Code Pro-12", "DevaVu Sans Mono-12", "Consolas-12" or
"Courier New-12" that was present on the machine?

Thanks,
Paul
