I'm looking for a nice font for emacs. I like
but the biggest size available on my system is
and I would like it bigger.

The "efont" looks similar and the right size is available. But there are
problems, when used with recent emacs versions. I've also tried the latest

Here the description of the problems
(screenshots are at ):

1.) emacs -fn -efont-biwidth-medium-r-normal--24-*-*-*-*-120-iso10646-1
- borders are extremely large (see screenshot 1)
- to get 80 columns, I must use "emacs -g 8x40" (division by 10)
- when moving up and down, the point jumps back to a column that is
  a multiple of 10
- when ispell is showing suggestions, it does not use the available width
  but more height (see screenshot 1)

2.) emacs -fn -efont-fixed-medium-r-normal--24-*-*-*-*-120-iso10646-1
- some letters look strange and take more width than the others, for
  example ü and é (see screenshot 2)

3.) emacs -fn -efont-*-medium-r-normal--24-*-*-*-*-120-iso10646-1
- the tabulation character displays twice as large as normal (see
  screenshot 3)

There are no such problems with emacs-22.X.

Can others reproduces these problems?
Is this a bug of emacs or the efont-package?
What solution do you suggest, is there perhaps another font, that looks
similar but without such problems?

For now, I use "adobe-courier-bold-r" but I don't like it so much... :(

Cheers and happy new year, Peter
