Thanks, that is an excellent resource. There are some fonts out
there that I like, but now I'm having trouble getting xterm to
display them properly.
The biggest problem is the line spacing. When I do:
xterm -fa 'Andale Mono' -fs 12
I get a nice, anti-aliased font, but the lines are spaced way too
far apart. Does this happen to others too? I'm using xterm 4.1.0-16.
The second problem is than I can't get bold fonts with -fa. If I do
xterm -fn '-monotype-andale mono-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso8859-1'
I get a bold font, but no antialiasing. Does anyone know how to get

The size depends on the font you use. It's not miniscule at all
for me! :-)

Why throw away resolution? I'd rather have a crisper font. I'm
using an LCD and don't want to waste pixels. But since most bitmap
fonts don't come large enough, this means I have to use truetype

I put -dpi 143 on the X command line in /etc/X11/xdm/Xservers. How
do I check if this is working?
Thanks for all the help!
