in a file that is read by xrdb. The problem is that this only works for certain fonts (for example: DejaVu Sans Mono, Consolas). A lot of fonts will just show up with normal weight (such as Monaco, Mensch, Andale mono).

The strange thing is that text that is supposed to be bold (like in manpages, ls output) still shows up as bold. But if I were to put

then none of the text will be bold. It's as if the font has no style called "bold", even though any font selection dialog says otherwise. The fact that some of the text shows up as bold with boldFont is unspecified tells me that rxvt-unicode is capable of displaying bolded versions of these fonts.

I tried using these fonts in konsole and xfce4-terminal. Konsole doesn't even offer Monaco as a possible font (it doesn't think it's a monospace font, but this is a known bug), and Mensch is only available in Regular and Oblique styles. In xfce4-terminal, both Mensch and Monaco are available in Bold.
