Setting font height in Xresources

Hi, I want to use the default font but change the height attribute in
Gnu EMacs 23.0.60 on Linux, Ubuntu Intrepid. I can easily set this in
.emacs and in GNOME that works fine but under the xmonad window manager
(which is a tiling wm) it is messed up. Emacs starts with the larger
font size then resizes it. This leaves the echo area the wrong size and
any mode lines running up to about two thirds of the width of the frame
then stopping. If I change the xmonad layout then the emacs window is
redrawn and everything is fine, but this is a nuisance. (redraw-display)
at the end of .emacs didn't help.

I thought that setting the font height earlier on might help so tried to
set it in Xresources with


(not forgetting xrdb merge ...) but this has no effect on the font
size. What's the right way to do this?

Thanks a lot,

Jim Burton
