Maybe it's my setup (I did the "usual" putting 100dpi and :unscaled fonts ahead of 75dpi etc in /etc/X11/fs/config) but lucidasans looks horrible. 6x13 is just a bit too small. 8x13 a bit too wide (and unclear). -cronyx-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-* is appalling.
I'm grumpily happy with a14 - have tried many others and can't part from it.
I use a white on black background, plain old rxvt, in my view the best darn terminal emulator out there! Display is 1600x1280.
-adobe-courier-medium-r-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1 is a close alternative but nowhere near as clear.
