Proofreading with Emacs: Change font and size

For the sake of this article, let us pretend that you are a proof-reader associated with Distributed Proofreaders1.  You have installed the custom font, DPCustomMono22.  You want to use that font in proof-reading OCR-ed text within your Emacs.  You need to proceed as detailed below.  At the end of this process, Emacs would have recorded your preferences in your .emacs   as below.

(custom-set-faces
 '(default ((t (:family "DPCustomMono2"
 :foundry "DP "
 :slant normal
 :weight normal
 :height 120
 :width normal)))))
