    That'd be "man xterm"

    As curaga suggested, read the manpage: it usually says a good deal. But there are a couple other things....
    Code:
    man $PROGNAME
    man editres
    man appres
    #if you're wondering about classname, run and click!
    xprop | grep WM_CLASS
    Or, for a full all-in-one-pass command:
    Code:
    appres `xprop | grep WM_CLASS | awk -F'"' '{print $(NF-1)}'`
    And the defaults are in {/etc,/usr/share}/X11/app-defaults/$WM_CLASS[$customization]
    eg, add
    Code:
    *customization: -color
    if you want to really make the Xaw stuff look better and activate full color prompts in xterm
