Xft.dpi was the first line I ever added to .Xresources, some three or four years ago when I first started playing with Debian. IIRC, the "Xft" part refers to X11 fonts and the "dpi" stands for "dots per inch" -- so it's supposed to set the default font size (or something like that). I cannot recall how I initially found that one but it fixed some problem and so it stayed in my .Xresources.

If you want to browse the X Window System related man pages, start from "man X" -- it lists a bunch of other manual pages that you may or may not find interesting. Debian has also X Window System FAQ:
Most packages also install additional documentation under /usr/share/doc/.
