   I don't know what is the best default for Italian.  However, please
   note that by setting LANG to something like it.iso8859-15, a user
   tells Emacs to use Latin-9 rather than the default.  (At least that's
   how this is supposed to work; I didn't try.)
My question was referring to the case when I define a new language
environment for Italian.  In that case, one would say in .emacs:

(set-language-environment "Italian")

and the rest would come along automatically, including the fonts to be
used.  If this is correct, then setting language to Italian would be a
problem in those places where a latin-9 font does not exist.  Is this
the case?  Is it really a problem?
