Xfs is the X Window System font server. It supplies fonts to X Window System display servers.
Recognized keywords include:
Ordered list of font path element names. Use of the keyword "catalogue" is very misleading at present, the current implementation only supports a single catalogue ("all"), containing all of the specified fonts.
List of alternate servers for this font server.
Number of clients this font server will support before refusing service. This is useful for tuning the load on each individual font server.
Whether this font server should attempt to clone itself when it reachs the client-limit.
The default pointsize (in decipoints) for fonts that don't specify. The default is 120.
Resolutions the server supports by default. This information may be used as a hint for pre-rendering, and substituted for scaled fonts which do not specify a resolution. A resolution is a comma-separated pair of x and y resolutions in pixels per inch. Multiple resolutions are separated by commas.
Filename of the error file. All warnings and errors will be logged here.
Disable a transport type. For example, TCP/IP connections can be disabled with no-listen tcp
TCP port on which the server will listen for connections.
Whether syslog(3) (on supported systems) is to be used for errors.
Set the mode for delayed fetching and caching of glyphs. Value is "none", meaning deferred glyphs is disabled, "all", meaning it is enabled for all fonts, and "16", meaning it is enabled only for 16-bits fonts.

The hostname specifies the name (or decimal numeric address) of the machine on which the font server is running. The port is the decimal TCP port on which the font server is listening for connections. The cataloguelist specifies a list of catalogue names, with '+' as a separator.
Examples: tcp/fs.x.org:7100, tcp/188.8.131.52:7101/all.
One of the following forms can be used to name a font server that accepts DECnet connections:
The nodename specifies the name (or decimal numeric address) of the machine on which the font server is running. The objname is a normal, case-insensitive DECnet object name. The cataloguelist specifies a list of catalogue names, with '+' as a separator.
Examples: DECnet/SRVNOD::FONT$DEFAULT, decnet/44.70::font$special/symbols.
