Thanks for the response.

I'm using -sony-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-*-150-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1 which has no
bold equivalent.  It's still being bolded.  It looks like it's doing it by
overwriting the font.  It does the same for the vga font, which definitely
has no bold equivalent.  In BitchX this results in really smeared text.

Also I see no indication in the color schemes of jed that bold
fonts are intended.  For jed my color scheme is as follows:

$1 = "white"; $2 = "black";
set_color("menu", "white", "blue");    % menu bar  
set_color("normal", $1, $2);	       % default fg/bg  
set_color("status", "yellow", "blue"); % status or mode line  
set_color("region", "yellow", "blue"); % for marking regions  
set_color("operator", $1, $2);	       % +, -, etc..  
set_color("number", "yellow", $2);     % 10, 2.71,... TeX formulas  
set_color("comment", "brightcyan", $2);    % /* comment */  
set_color("string", "brightgreen", $2);    % "string" or 'char'  
set_color("keyword", "brightred", $2); % if, while, unsigned, ...  
set_color("keyword1", "green", $2);    % malloc, exit, etc...  
set_color("delimiter", $1, $2);	       % {}[](),.;...  
set_color("preprocess", "magenta", $2);% #ifdef ....  
set_color("message", "brightblue", $2);      % color for messages    
set_color("error", "brightred", $2);   % color for errors  
set_color("dollar", "magenta", $2);    % color dollar sign continuat$  
set_color("...", "red", $2);	       % folding indicator  

Oddly, magenta is not being bolded.
