Looking at the examples you mention, I can't understand how can you stand them :) Here's what I use almost exclusively (I also use mlterm, if i have to edin something remotely in UTF8):

aterm -bg black -fg grey -cr white -tr +sb -sl 2048 -font -cronyx-fixed-bold-r-normal-*-14-130-75-75-c-70-microsoft-cp1251

For many years I've used 10x20 as my default font for everything (xterm/rxvt/emacs/twm menus/...). It's
full name is -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-200-75-75-c-100-iso8859-1

The letters are elegant, the lines are thick, and my eyes are not strained. I use
a 800x600 laptop display (TP 560x), which can fit one 80x28 rxvt or a similar-sized emacs.
I bind many function keys so that I can quickly switch
among the various ssh (in rxvt), emacs, lynx (in rxvt), and galeon

I'm using a Debian testing system (XFree 4.3.0) with sub-pixel
rendering, although I don't know whether 10x20 benefits from it,
but it looks very nice as it is.
