It would appear, then, that Lesstif is only capable of handling 8-bit

Well, this isn't ideal, either.

For one thing, if you use uxterm this shouldn't be necessary.

For another, your specification is too broad.

XTerm.vt100.font:     10x20

I'd use a specification like that.

Finally, the name of the file should be ".Xresources".
