You can specify the font you want in ~/.Xdefaults, like this:

emacs*font: fixed
#emacs*font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
#emacs*font: -sony-*-*-*-*-*-16-*-100-*-*-*-iso8859-*

and restart emacs.

Then you can switch fonts by pressing Shift-Button1 inside emacs, the
font given in .Xdefaults becomes 'default' in the font menu.

There's more to it, read the emacs manual :)

Hope this helps
