FWIW, it is a true "Black and White" display with "1 bit" depth.
grayscale is emulated by interpolation, i guess kind of like it is done
on laser printers.

as final note:

That 19 fonts which 'xlsfonts' used to show befoer were build-in fonts.
Now I have connected this X-Terminal to external X Font Server, so that it
got bit more fonts.

address@hidden adam]$ xset +fp unix/pepsi.eax.com:7100
address@hidden adam]$ xlsfonts  | wc
   8296    9668  490918
address@hidden adam]$ /usr/local/emacs21/bin/emacs
        Warning: Invalid color `grey75'
address@hidden adam]$


though it seems slower at times when it has to get the fonts over network,
and makes it dependent on my desktop being up at all times :(
