some utf8 chars are terrible small.

I got around to this today. I realize that Uwe's font issues have been
resolved, but I'm seeing something I don't understand.
I, too, am seeing a very small infinity symbol when I view the table in
TeX-escape-region.el. I have
in my .Xresources, so I thought maybe it's because XEmacs has to use a
different font for the infinity symbol. But if I change .Xresources to
and restart XEmacs, I still get a small infinity symbol. But xfontsel
shows a perfectly usable (larger) infinity symbol for that fontspect.
Using the ffi2 and ffi3 functions (thanks, Robert!), I see that XEmacs
is still using a different font for the infinity:
#<font-instance "-misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso10646-1" on #<x-device on ":0.0" 0x2> font id: 0x3a0020d, 0x72>
and it's using an iso8859 font for normal characters like "i":
#<font-instance "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--15-120-100-100-c-90-iso8859-1" on #<x-device on ":0.0" 0x2> font id: 0x3a0007a, 0x64>
Is this to be expected? Why isn't XEmacs using
for the infinity? It has a perfectly fine infinity symbol (according to
This is with 21.5.31 (f87be7ddd60d).
