In reply to: fixed font
Parent article: The Grumpy Editor's guide to terminal emulators
so far back as i remember, "fixed" has been an alias for "6x13".
looking at my fonts.alias, "6x13" is in turn an alias for
but it's the same font it's been for the last 15+ years: a lightly serifed, clean, readable font which packs a lot of information into limited screen size.
many years ago, i saw something about the response of the human eye to colour, which (as i recall, anyway), said that blue was the hardest to see and a yellow/orange the easiest.
ever since i've used yellow 6x13 text on a blue background, which aside from showing up convergence problems on monitors, i find far easier to use than black on white, etc.
