Ok, that does work.  However, under my xterms, I can get the "line art" with
the '-b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-*-*-180-*-*-m-*-iso8859-1' font,
which I can't with my aterms?  Any thoughts on what would need to change to
make that work?

Judging from the calm exibited by people in this country during the
