Default How add additional features on xterm ( Xfce ) ?

How add additional features on xterm ( Xfce ) ?

In Gnome i have many feautures.
Also i would like some feautures on Xfce xterm.
I would like:
increment the dimension of font
copy the content of screen using the mouse.

Is it possible?

for what I remember Xfce has its own terminal that is called ... "terminal" that has many features like the gnome one.

if you want to stay with xterm you can look at "man xterm" where you can find many options to configure the look-and-feel (these options are saved in a file ".Xdefaults" under your home)... or you can look at some examples like vermaden's .Xdefaults and change some values, you can find it here:

to copy it should be sufficient to select a text with the mouse and click with the central button of the mouse on the area where you want to paste the selection...

 * my brains random thinking on the matter
if ( xterm != have_required_features ) {
        search_ports("look for one that will");
} else {
        self.roll_own_term = true;

urxvt (utf) and mrxvt (iso) are term with nice features like tabs for example, but if you use gnu screen you do not need tabs

Linux is not UNIX! Face it! It is not an insult. It is fact: GNU is a recursive acronym for “GNU's Not UNIX”.

Roxterm is almost almost the same as the gnome terminal.
Lighter weight.
Almost same preferences but on menus instead of a coloured, full with icons interface.
