Is it possible to specify what mouse cursor gets used for xterm? Also, how can I ensure that graphic characters are displayed correctly? Some of the characters using the 'fixed' font aren't being displayed properly (i image this might have something to do with UTF-8 encoding).

vim .Xdefaults
Code:

xterm*charClass:            33:48,37:48,45-47:48,64:48
! bonus: turn on better mouse double click selections.
xterm*pointerShape:        gumby
! get more pointer names in /usr/X11R6/include/X11/cursorfont.h
! see man xterm for lots more cool stuff.


xrdb -merge .Xdefaults
or restart X.

about your font: I think you are right about the encoding being the culprit. Mabey you could try switching to iso8859-15? you can set that in .Xdefaults too.
