Markus Kuhn is one of the XFree86 maintainers, right? So these fonts
were BDF fonts?

w32-select-font is merely a way of selecting a font. It does not
change anything, it returns the name of the font you selected. To
change the Unicode font, you'll need to include the string returned
by w32-select-font in a fontset.

In the *scratch* buffer, insert "(w32-select-font nil t)" and type
Ctrl-J after it, that will show you the result of calling the function.

What format were Marcus Kuhn's fonts?
