You can put what you want into .Xresources – no X client ever reads this file. Except one: xrdb. And it has the choice between ~/.Xresources and ~/.Xdefaults, by default. If xrdb's data base was not updated, then GNU
Emacs does not see any changes in the selected base file.

The only effect this has is that list-fontsets is now one line longer:
Fontset: -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-default
Fontset: -*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-standard
Fontset: -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-startup

But no inconsolata there :(

Is it somewhere documented that from setting a font X resource for GNU Emacs you get a fontset?



Government is actually the worst failure of civilized man. There has never been a really good one, and even those that are most tolerable are arbitrary, cruel, grasping and unintelligent.
