Emacs and ~/.Xdefaults

I've decided that I like my emacs to have nice green letters on dark
background.  To this end, I looked in the emacs manual and created a
file ~/.Xdefaults with the following incantations:

emacs.background: Black
emacs.foreground: LimeGreen

However this seems to have no effect.  I got a tip from somewhere, and

xrdb -merge ~/.Xdefaults

to my ~/.xsession.  However this only has an effect if I start emacs
from the xterm started in my .xsession; if I launch emacs from the
fvwm2 menus it does not work.

What should I do?
