With XQuartz 2.8.0_rc1 running on MacOS 10.15.7, when I run an xterm and ctrl-middle-click on an xterm I get a popup font menu as shown here. How can I set the default font so that all xterms open with, for example, UTF-8 encoding?
Incidentally, I'm seeking this after the XQuartz update that I accepted yesterday. I previously used Terminal and xterm -- Terminal for vim editors (because the encoding was otherwise wrong) and xterm for everything else. But after yesterday's XQuartz update, I can no longer run xterm from within Terminal (well, they "run" but they don't display). So I want to use only xterm, but I need to be able to set the font encoding, preferably to UTF-8 since that seems to be what all my remote machines are using.
