Thank you indeed!

Long bygone are the times when I still actively worked with the X Window
System and Athena Widgets.

The shift-+ had slipped by, I was so accustomed to use ctrl-+.

Branden had already told me to use -fn.

Thank you again,

I cannot use xterm, uxterm and Eterm on my system because of the high
screen resolution; those terminal windows appear as tiny stamps which do
not accept the Ctrl-+ resizing command.
With XTerm, the font can be set in three ways that I know of.
By setting the appropriate resource (perhaps "XTerm*vt100.font")
in your ~/.Xresources, through option "-fn" and interactively,
with [shift]-[-] and [shift]-[+]. If you know what font you
want, a wrapper script can be as simple as

: ${font:="-b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-26-190-100-100-m-159-*"}
exec xterm -fn "$font" "$@"
