Hi Robert - thanks for responding !

Yes, Monospace is in fact an alias to 'Andale Mono' in my .fonts.conf 
that I created ages ago and forgot about:
<?xml version='1.0'?>
   <family>Andale Mono</family>
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="rgba" >
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hinting" >
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle" >
 <match target="font" >
  <edit mode="assign" name="antialias" >

But please, let users be the judge of what "doesn't look very nice" :

I could append screen-shots to this bug report of "xterm",  "gnome-console" 
and KDE-3.5 "konsole" displaying the same manual page or info node, 
all of them except KDE 4.2 konsole nicely doing the fake bolding -
particularly when you are trying to develop and test manual-page
nroff generators, it really is essential that the full range of 
terminal fonts are made available to nroff .
Oh well, I guess I'll have to use xterm in order to test manual pages -
not a major pain - but I'd still vote for konsole bringing back "fake bold
, perhaps as a configuration option.
