Define some more fonts and fontsets à la:

(setq x-fixed-font-alist
    '("X11 Font Menu"
       ("Misc fixed"
;; For these, we specify the pixel height and width.
        ("«ProFont»" "»ProFont«")
        ("ISO 10646-1"
        ("24 bold slant"
"-adobe-courier-bold-o-normal--*-240-75-75-m-*-iso10646-1" "24 bold

xdpyinfo tells your screen's size. In .Xdefaults you can put:

Emacs*geometry: 1440x900



Do I have to do all of the above just to get 14 pt font instead of the 
default 12 pt?
Also, I created a .Xdefaults file and put in:
Emacs*geometry 1280x1024
It didn't work for me.
Many thanks,
