I've forgotten who provided the following information --
anyway I have been able to use it to extend the available
fonts under Fontset.  I did not manage to do anything with
the fonts under Misc & Courier.  I was not able to work out
how to use the information at:

John Maindonald

M-x set-default-font
hit TAB twice

This will give you a list of all fonts available on your system. There
is no 16 pt monaco, but you can have an 18 or even 24 pt courier. I
take the 24-pt courier as an exmple. It is specified in your list like

Write this into your .emacs:

(setq default-frame-alist '((width . 80)
                             (height . 36)
                             (font . "fontset-courier")))
