This would be true if we were playing strictly by the X/Motif rules, but
in order to make some more complex displays i.e. the "Monalista" and
"Textalista" we create those windows in OPEN/GL.  In this case we make
up our own rules about fonts, etc.  BTW just because you put fonts and
other items into the resource files does not mandate that an application
uses them.  They are merely "serving suggestions."

We have tried to make the "most used" displays have fonts that can be
adjusted.  If there are others that need them, please let us know.
