That's not terribly surprising. On my system, that font specification
matches 4 fonts:
Depending on what you have installed on your system, you could be
getting a font that doesn't match the resolution of your display, or you
could be getting a different foundry's version of Courier.
If you can't get Xft working well enough for your needs, see if the
xfontsel command is installed on your system. You can select the family
(Courier), weight (bold), slant (r), and point size (180), at which
point xfontsel should display the same characters that you're seeing in
XEmacs. Then you can play with the other settings to find a font that
you like. (I'd start with the foundry and resx settings.) When you've
got the settings adjusted to your taste, copy out the font specification
from the pane in the xfontsel window.
