Summary: Some fonts not rendering


------- Additional Comments From nicolas.mailhot at laposte.net  2008-04-10 16:20 EST -------
xterm probably still uses the old legacy so-called core X11 support. Pretty much
everything else uses the new (for more-than-five-years-old values of new)
fontconfig font system. The core X11 font backend and the fontconfig backend do
not have access to the same fonts (in particular we do not install old fonts in
weird formats in fontconfig, and we do not install modern complex fonts in core

Install a modern font package instead of the one you're using in xterm and
you'll be fine.
