When I try to select "Inconsolata Medium" from the font dialog, I get an

Font not available: #<font-spec nil nil Inconsolata\ Medium nil nil nil
nil nil 12.0 nil nil nil ((:name . "Inconsolata Medium 12"))>

Inconsolata Italic works for me.

It seems that font selection in emacs-snapshot is currently broken.
When I choose Courier, I get Nimbus instead, the ugliest font mankind
ever invented. :-/
I've reported this upstream: http://emacsbugs.donarmstrong.com/3228.
