I usually find using xfontsel to select an appropriate font and then
putting that in the .Xresources/.Xdefaults file works well.
Alternatively, using the customize interface and setting the default
face should work. Finally, specifying a font on the command line
should provide a quick way to test various fonts until you find one
that works well.
