help-argument-name unreadable in some sizes

The face for 'help-argument-name' is unreadable in some sizes but not all.

Doubtless, it depends on the quality and type of your display.

For example, 'help-argument-name' does fine with the following fonts,
as listed in x-fixed-font-alist in ...emacs/lisp/mouse.el

  ("6x12" "-misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--12-*-*-*-c-60-iso8859-1" "6x12")
  ("6x13" "-misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-*-*-*-c-60-iso8859-1" "6x13")

but not in:

  ("7x13" "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-*-*-*-c-70-iso8859-1" "7x13")
  ("7x14" "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--14-*-*-*-c-70-iso8859-1" "7x14")

To duplicate, 

    emacs -Q -D


    (describe-function 'describe-function) 

then use <S-down-mouse-1> (i.e., mouse-set-font) and select the fonts
from the `Misc' menu.

Also, the face for 'help-argument-name' is readable in Courier 14,
Courier 18, Courier 24, as well as Courier Slant 14, Courier Slant 18,
and Courier Slant 24 which are listed in x-fixed-font-alist in
...emacs/lisp/mouse.el as:

     ("14" "-adobe-courier-medium-r-normal--*-140-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1")
     ("18" "-adobe-courier-medium-r-normal--*-180-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1")
     ("24" "-adobe-courier-medium-r-normal--*-240-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1")
     ("14 slant" "-adobe-courier-medium-o-normal--*-140-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1")
     ("18 slant" "-adobe-courier-medium-o-normal--*-180-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1")
     ("24 slant" "-adobe-courier-medium-o-normal--*-240-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1")
