I set my font in a special .xEmacs file which I include into my
.Xresources e.g

.Xresources:

,----
| #include "./.emacs.d/.xEmacs"
`----

.xEmacs:

,----
| Emacs*font: -adobe-courier-medium-r-normal-*-12-100-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1
| Emacs.toolBar: off
| Emacs.menu: on
| Emacs.foreground: wheat
| Emacs.background: darkslategrey
| Emacs.pointerColor: Grey
| Emacs.cursorColor: LightGray
| Emacs.borderColor: black
`----


It is much faster on my system than setting with a call to
set-default-font.
