Monaco in Native OS X GNU Emacs
My current preferred fixed-width font on the Mac is Monaco, but when I compiled Carbon GNU Emacs sometime ago Monaco wasn't rendered cleanly, Andale Mono was more or less OK, but not as nice as in a native editor either. In addition, I needed to create a fontset by hand to be able to enter accented characters.
;; See C-h f set-language-environment RET for details. (set-language-environment "Latin-1") ;; This is a PowerBook. (set-keyboard-coding-system 'mac-roman) ;; Transform input from the keyboard into latin1. (setq mac-keyboard-text-encoding kTextEncodingISOLatin1)
This definitely makes Emacs a better Mac citizen.
