Thanks.  Good page.  That helped me formulate the coding below.  And in
it the variable value "normal" should be acceptable, but emacs doesn't
like it for some reason (see below).*  Perhaps my syntax is off somewhere?

Thanks much, but that gives the same error as in my previous email.

So I tried this instead:

(set-face-attribute 'default nil :family "alegreya" :foundry "misc"
:slant "normal" :weight "normal" :height 258 :width "normal")

It works, but throws an error: Wrong type argument: symbolp, "normal"

Prior to this I tried the same, but without quotes around the three
instances of "normal" -- that didn't work at all.

Another problem is that the resulting font is too small, but changing
"258" to e.g. "358" doesn't change anything.  How can I find out an
appropriate specification?

Thanks again.

* I was going to say more about this, but emacs crashed.
