The previous posting below describes exactly the problem I'm having,
but regrettably there were no solution posted to this problem.

I would like to ask again if anyone know how to fix this problem.

Please post AND email if possible --
Thanks

Hi,

problem with emacs-21.2:

I like to use the "vga" font on X11, which works fine on previous
versions of emacs.  This font is made of pretty thick lines.

Emacs-21.2 seems to automatically thin these lines.  It takes the
geometry of the "vga" font just fine, but not the layout of the
characters.  It seems to me that this is an emacs-21.2 feature I don't
want but I can't figure out how to turn it off.

I put screenshots here:

what I get:  http://www.cons.org/tmp/l2.gif

Please note that I am sure the actual loading of the font succeeded.
emacs-21.2 changed th size of the font (and hence the window) just
fine 
88c
and it arrives at the new font geometry as specified in the "vga"
font, switching away fromt he previously loaded font.  But the new
f
885
ont is thinned.

L
5b4
isp is code is simply (set-frame-font "vga")

Let me guess: I need to define a fontset and load the supposely thick
font into the slot of the normal one?

Thanks
        Martin
