Hi, Looper!

Probably you need utf-compatible fixed font. I use Terminus fonts, and like them very much. Install terminus-fonts extension.

Hi Looper
If you go here:
http://pod.tst.eu/http://cvs.schmorp.de/rxvt-unicode/doc/rxvt.1.pod#RESOURCES
It tells you where  urxvt  looks for configuration information. If you scroll down to where it says  font: fontlist , It provides
an explanation.

This shows ho to select fonts when starting  urxvt:

urxvt can read its settings from ~/.Xdefaults
For example, my ~/.Xdefaults is
Code: [Select]
tc@box:~$ cat ~/.Xdefaults
Aterm*scrollBar: false
Aterm*transparent: false
Aterm*title: Terminal
Aterm*foreground: black
Aterm*background: aquamarine
Aterm*font: Terminus-bold-20
Aterm*cursorColor: green
Aterm*fading: 70
Aterm*shading: 50
Aterm*color12: DodgerBlue1
Aterm*saveLines: 1000
fltk*scheme: gtk+
Xft.dpi: 96.0
urxvt*background: aquamarine
urxvt*foreground: black
urxvt*font: Terminus-bold-20
urxvt*scrollBar: false

Assigning colors you can use ones found in /usr/local/share/X11/rgb.txt
