I am  French and i have some  problems specifically with OSX  to use latin-9
(seems fixed now) and box-drawing unicode chars.

I used to configure  Emacs in the same way than Ulrich  by defining an Apple
Monaco  9 pt fontset  (I missed  your interesting  december 2004  post about
Cyrillic  characters display  support) for  ascii, latin-1  and  latin-9 and
trying    to   choose    (with   little    success)   unicode    fonts   for
mule-unicode-0100-24ff and mule-unicode-2500-33ff.

I defined  it like  that  to use  with later  default-frame-alist
font :
   mule-unicode-2500-33ff:-apple-bitstream vera sans mono 

I just  updated my cvs this  morning (including the patch  you just provided
concerning fontset-mac) and i noticed  that my fontset definition is no more
taken into account.

Every    attempt    to    change     the    frame    fontset    by    either
create-fontset-from-fontset-spec,         create-fontset-from-mac-roman-font,
face-font-registry-alternatives  or set-frame-font  seems to  fall  into the
-etl-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-  fontset, even choosing  the font  from the
S-Mouse1 menu.

The only command that managed to change the fontset to something else is the
"defaults write" command  that is available since you  added the preferences
