Thanks for your reply, Jesper. I have decided that I don't want italic
comments and strings when I program anymore, but I do want to use bold for
certain things, language keywords being one. Using the FAQ, I have been
trying to get it to work, but it's not really working. The settings I will
post below yield bold strings that doesn't appear wide enough, the last
characters seems cut-off..I can post a screenshot if you want. I have the
following settings now:

(if (eq window-system 'w32)
      (add-to-list 'load-path "c:/emacs-21.3/cc-mode-5.30.8")
      (setq w32-enable-synthesized-fonts t)
      (set-face-font 'bold
      (w32-send-sys-command ?\xf030) ; Start as maximized. Or use $
emacs --fullscreen


 '(font-lock-comment-face ((t (:foreground "Green"))))
 '(font-lock-reference-face ((((class color) (background light))
(:foreground "LightGreen"))))
 '(font-lock-string-face ((t (:foreground "Gray"))))
 '(font-lock-keyword-face ((t (:bold t :foreground "Cyan"))))
 '(font-lock-constant-face ((t (:foreground "Yellow"))))
 '(font-lock-type-face ((t (:bold t :foreground "White"))))
 '(font-lock-variable-name-face ((t (:foreground "Yellow"))))
 '(font-lock-function-name-face ((t (:foreground "Cyan"))))
 '(font-lock-builtin-face ((t (:bold t :foreground "LightGreen")))))

These settings sets the font correctly and sets the types I want bold to
bold, but as I explained above, something is not right because all bold
words are cut off at the end (you can hardly see the last character). Please
help me solve this.
