Ok, I can find the font in the completion of set-frame-font and
x-list-fonts, but setting one of the inconsolata fonts with
set-frame-font results in "byte-code: Font
`-misc-inconsolata-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso10646-1' is not
defined" (displayed in the echo area/ *Messages* buffer), the same
happens with 8859-1 encoding.
