It's not a font problem (which you can see by opening the font in 
fontbook/Schriftsammlung) but of setting Emacs' environment. Try this:

(cond ((string-match "21" emacs-version)
         (message "¿Müßte Vèrsiön, Ääh, 21 séìñ?")
         (set-default-coding-systems                      'utf-8)
         (set-variable 'file-name-coding-system           'utf-8)
         (set-variable 'default-buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8)
;       (set-terminal-coding-system                      
         (set-terminal-coding-system                      'utf-8)

For TeX ISO Latin-1, i.e. iso-8859-15-unix, could be a better choice.

Besides this I found that the carbonized Emacsen do have problems with 
a non-english character set.

You too could set another monospaced font, maybe from the Lucida fonts 
in Java. To see all your font choices type: 'M-x set-frame-font RET TAB 
TAB' and save the *Completions* buffer for later use. (GNU Emacs under 
X11 has another set ...)

(Is there really no Emacs list that is helpful for beginners?)
