What is the difference between XLFD and Xft?

What's the best way to work with XLFD names?

Two nearly indispensible utilities for working with XLFD names are xfontsel ( xorg-xfontsel) and xlsfonts ( xorg-xlsfonts ). Xfontsel uses dropdown menus for selecting parts of a font name and previews the font selected.
