Indeed. I have made  some attempts in that way to have  a correct display of
euro char  and box drawing chars for  the Gnus threads tree.  I only succeed
for the euro char. I added an attachment of my usual display.

To get back my display once I noticed that my fontset definition is ignored,
i tried several methods :
- selecting in the popup menu (S-Mouse1)
- following your example M-: (set-frame-font (create-fontset-from-mac-roman-font

I can  see that the  frame briefly flashes  then it redisplays with  the etl

I also added the custom-set-variables for face-font-registry-alternatives as
you advised.

The only useful setting is the "defaults write" method.

I  have noticed  formerly  that some  characters  displays correctly  (euro,
eastern Europe languages)  but many fail in the  range 2500-33ff and display
instead some Cyrillic.

It seems also  that now Chinese/Japanese messages that  i get sometimes with
Gnus in the forums are not displayed anymore : the glyphs are now all hollow

Could you  give an  example of  a full fontset  definition ?  I am  not that
familiar with it and OSX is  the only platform where I have display problems
(GNU/Linux hopefully  provides the  unifont) and I  surely made  some errors
with it...
