What is the command line arguments to make XTerm use the Huge font by default?  It is annoying having to go and right click + CNTRL on the window every time I open up xterm.  I am using WindowMaker.  Please provide detailed instructions, I am new to WindowMaker!  Thanks!!

That doesn't work.  I had tried that before.  I get the following error when trying that:

"xterm: unable to open font 'huge', trying 'fixed' . . .
