Package: xterm
Version: 224-1
Severity: normal


the manual page of xterm says: Note that xterm has one bold font which
you may set explicitly. It attempts to match a bold font for the other
font selections (font1 through font6). If the normal and bold fonts are
distinct, this resource [boldMode] has no effect.

So I set boldFont and boldMode:
% xrdb -query|grep -E '(XTerm.*ont|bold)'
XTerm.*.boldFont:       -misc-fixed-bold-*-*-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1
XTerm.*.font:           -misc-fixed-medium-*-*-*-18-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1
XTerm.*.boldMode:       false

As you can see the font and boldFont entities are distinct, ergo the
boldMode resource should get ignored. But it isn't so. I don't get bold
characters. If I set the boldMode to true, I get ugly characters for
font1 through font6.

Bye, Jörg.
