Emacs for X11.

ok i don't know if this is xemacs or just emacs configured for x ???
but i only know emacs anyway
there are lots of ways
you can specify a fixed width font when you start it (emacs --font *fixed-bold-r-*-15-*-*)
or put that in ~/.Xresources like
emacs.font: *fixed-bold-r-*-15-*-*
read it in for testing with xrdb ~/.Xresources
is read at login otherwise
or easier still use the point and click thing
Options-> mule -> set fontset (doesn't seem to be able to save this though but you can see the options and look up how to write them with xfontsel)
