I tried now inside Emacs "(modify-all-frames-parameters '((font .
"-misc-inconsolata-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1")))", but when
evaluating this line I get the following error "Debugger entered-- Lisp error: (error "Font `-misc-inconsolata-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*- iso8859-1'
is not defined")", so I guess there's still something I'm missing?

M-x set-frame-font TAB TAB produces a large *Completions* buffer with fonts
GNU Emacs "sees." It's also possible to evaluate

       (x-list-fonts "*-inconsolata-*")

in *scratch* buffer. I found a line

       (font . "-adobe-courier-medium-r-*-11-*-iso10646-1")

– and it still works!

Ok, I can find the font in the completion of set-frame-font and
x-list-fonts, but setting one of the inconsolata fonts with
set-frame-font results in "byte-code: Font
`-misc-inconsolata-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso10646-1' is not
defined" (displayed in the echo area/ *Messages* buffer), the same
happens with 8859-1 encoding.

Three possible options:

 • change syntax
 • use different font

The fourth option would be to think of the possible use of proportional-spaced font of size 0.
