hallelujah, David,

a restoration of my Monaco.dfont in /System/Library/fonts probably _would_  
have been the right cure _if_ it had been absent or corrupted. Obviously  
it wasn't.

Oh wonder: after the new start of MacOSX today, out of curiosity I clicked  
the Aquamacs app link and … it's running now.

I had not yet installed another Monaco.dfont …
I don't know why Aquamacs did not start last night, perhaps for forcing me  
to go to sleep…;-)

It seems that the removals of Monaco.ttf off ~/Library/fonts and  
/Library/fonts were decisive.

So, nobody should further say, Aquamacs 1.9 wouldn't be applicable and  
easyly installable on MacOSX 10.4 Tiger.

Though I agree Aquamacs should, in future versions, fall back to another  
font and/or give a better error message.

Thank you, David, again for your patient help!
