Try putting the font in quotes
Code:
xterm -fn "-bitstream-bitstream vera sans-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-9"

i chose this font:
xterm -fn "-b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-18-180-75-75-m-110-iso8859-9"

when i list directory with ls - directories are blue,executable files are green, tar files are red...
and they are "bold".
how to set them to normal??
