Hi Mitsuharu

Thanks very much for your reply.

Hi, Accented characters are not fontified correctly.

I can't reproduce it either with fontset-mac (the default one) or with

"-apple-monaco-medium-r-normal--14-*-*-*-*-*-mac-roman" nil "test1")
  (set-frame-font "fontset-test1")

while I can reproduce with

latin-iso8859-1:-apple-monaco-medium-r-normal--14-*-*-*-*-*-mac- roman")
  (set-frame-font "fontset-test2")

Aren't you using a fontset defined with
create-fontset-from-fontset-spec ?

Yes, that is correct. I had changed fonts using the font menu, which presents a list of fonts that seem to have been made using create- fontset-from-fontset-spec. Everything is fine if I use create-fontset- from-mac-roman-font as you suggest.

Besides the above problem, I'd rather not recommend the use of
create-fontset-from-fontset-spec on Carbon Emacs because it introduces
tons of wrong glyphs.  For example, "×" is displayed as "W", "ý" as
"}", and so on.

Ah yes, so it does. I hadn't noticed this since I rarely use anything outside iso-latin-1.

Can create-fontset-from-fontset-spec be fixed? If not, presumably its use should be avoided in the fonts listed in the font menu.
