Mmmh. I set

emacs.font: -etl-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-*

in my .Xresources.

I think utf8 is already working here. I can look at a utf8 file including
Georgian, Thai, Braille, mathematical signs,... without problems. C-h C
gives me

Coding system for saving this buffer:
  u -- mule-utf-8-unix
Default coding system (for new files):
  u -- mule-utf-8 (alias: utf-8)
Coding system for keyboard input:
Coding system for terminal output:
  u -- mule-utf-8 (alias: utf-8)
Defaults for subprocess I/O:
  decoding: u -- mule-utf-8 (alias: utf-8)
  encoding: u -- mule-utf-8 (alias: utf-8)

Only aspell isn't working in emacs. So there is no need of setting LANG
somewhere, isn't it? If it was still necessary, do I have to put it
into .Xressources?
