That just means that the font xterm is using has no character to represent a given code point. Try a more complete font.
Hey, thanks for the tip. I got xterm working with CJK using
xterm -fn '-misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso10646-1'
Not that I'll ever remember that specific font, but I know what to google for if I need it.
What I did notice, however, is that many (all?) of the fonts recommended by previous posters above do not include complete support for the particular unicode characters that I need. It seems that only a small subset of the fonts include such support, which is not ideal, although it sure is better than none.
That and the fact that CJK characters benefit greatly from antialiasing mean I'll stick with gnone-terminal, but at least now I know how to use xterm if I have to.
