Question Bold text in Eterm and aterm

I recently transitioned from using Eterm to aterm and got everything looking almost the same, but there's one thing I can't figure out how to do. In Eterm, it seems that "bold" fonts are not displayed as bold, but in aterm they are (I'm using the default fixed font for both). When I type "ls" in aterm, all the directories appear as bold text which is a bit more difficult to read, so I'd like it to be displayed the same as the other text (as it does in Eterm). Is there a way to do this? Thanks.

I think that's just the way the terminals are designed...aterm uses bold, and Eterm uses bright. Possibly would need to modify the sources to change that.

If you get a better answer, though, I'd like to hear about it too =o)
