I'm using the Urxvt terminal.
aptitude show rxvt-unicode
RXVT-like terminal emulator with Unicode support
rxvt-unicode is a modern, Unicode-aware color xterm replacement that

other Unicode supporting terminal emulators.

This package contains the program version with most commonly-used
features enabled, including transparency, (16-bit) Unicode and
FreeType font support.
I have the file ~/.Xdefaults setup:
