Perhaps that because you don't have
-cronyx-courier-...-iso8859-1.  Emacs by default uses an
iso8859-1 font for ASCII.  To change it, you must create a
proper fontset by one of these ways:

(1) In your .emacs:


Then, after you start Emacs, by selecting fontset-cronyx17
with s-mouse-1->fontset->cronyx17, Emacs change the default
fonts to cronyx-courier.

(2) Setting X resource:

When you set these resources,


Emacs.Font: fontset-cronyx17

you can start emacs automatically with a proper font.

Another one time way is to start Emacs as this:

% emacs -fn -cronyx-courier-medium-r-normal--17-*-*-*-m-*-iso10646-1
