Cygwin XTerm settings

By default, XTerm looks like:

To make it look like:

add these lines to ~/.Xdefaults:


XTerm*background:Black
XTerm*foreground:White
XTerm*font:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-120-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1

In screenshot above, the more command is about to load the default settings of XTerm, which is where I got the font value from.
