Here's what I have in my init file.  This sets it for all frames.

(modify-all-frames-parameters
 '((font . "-microsoft-consolas-medium-r-*-*-*-110-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1")))

Though for emacs23 you can write it as:

(modify-all-frames-parameters
 '((font . "Consolas-11")))

I know emacs 23 supports font antialiasing and I think emacs on windows
uses clear type.
