All XFree86 servers, see X(1).  I use the vanilla nvidia mode.

I take 100.  If, however, there isn't a 100 in the font path, but there is
a 75, then and only then I use the 75.  Moreover, I do not worry about
about xdpyinfo, nor about X -probeonly, or whatever.  100 is always good,
except if there aren't any 100 fonts.

I'm using the `man -w' mechanism in groffview 0.2 to get the man-pages.
