I beleive Gilles was talking about the decorations (border,
title bar) that the window manager puts around xterm's window.

Probably there is a GNOME specific prototol that gnome-terminal
uses to tell the gnome window manager to remove those
decorations. As xterm is not a gnome application, it probably
doesn't have this option.

However, every window manager that I've used have a way or
another to remove decorations based on the X window class of an

So browsing through the gnome configuration menus, you may find
a way to remove those decorations, I don't think the answer is
to be found in xterm itself. In KDE, there's a fullscreen action
in the window menu  (<Alt-F3> -> Advanced -> Full Screen).
