Ah. 21.5's manuals are online, I should see what "xft
site:www.xemacs.org" comes up with.
I found it now. I obviously didn't try very hard before. Sorry about that!

Aidan? Mike? You guys were the last to muck with the default list of
fonts to try.
After looking over the manual, I have now been able to set the default
font to Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-11 which works well enough. (11 is a
bit small, but 12 seems overly large, and quite a big step up from 11.)
I was hoping to be able to use Adobe Courier-12 but it doesn't seem to
work. Could be a problem with my setup, but my gnome-terms use Courier
Most of the info file is kind of useless for someone who just wants to
set a font. The sample Xresources at the very end of the section was
the most beneficial. The modeline and defaults work as specified. I
didn't compile in xft support for the menubar or tabs so I don't know if

You can suppress (most of) it with (setq xft-debug-level 0). If you
want to suppress all of it I guess you're going to have to edit the
DEFVAR for xft-debug-level. It's in vars_of_font_mgr() in
src/font_mgr.c. This is completely safe for you to edit, as long as
you stick to natural numbers for the value. You probably don't want
to set it to "4". :-)
Not 11? :-) I don't need to change the debug level right now, in case
there's some info there that someone might want to know.
Thanks, everyone, for your help,
