"some unusual features"
- The Tek terminal emulation, changing from Xlfd to xft type faces by a menu selection, and the Ctrl-Mouseclick pop-up menus, all seem unusual to me. Being able to customize the mouse-click text selections using regular expressions is a newer feature of xterm that might be considered unusual. Too bad the wiki article doesn't cover that how-to.

trannset-df with xterm emulators
- Xfce-terminal does not set or use the $TERM variable in the same way as xterm. Xfce-terminal man pages refer to termcap and Archlinux uses terminfo. See this forum thread.

Fix the alt key section
For a user which is customized to emacs keybinding, such as
alt+b to move a word forward and backward,
alt+backspace to delete a word forward and backward, one may want xterm to behave as such. For this type of user,
XTerm*eightBitInput: false or
XTerm*metaSendsEscape: true is needed so that
xterm behaves as expected.
For a user which is customized to default xterm settings, such as
alt+d to type
alt+f to type
æ, the default
xterm behavior, i.e.
XTerm*eightBitInput: true and
XTerm*metaSendsEscape: false, is more suitable.
- Yes, examples like that belong in the article section. Right now it contains an unexplained solution to an unspecified problem. -- Alad (talk) 09:54, 23 October 2016 (UTC)
