Thanks, Gary.  The way to set the default font on the current frame would be

(set-face-attribute 'default (selected-frame) :font "Consolas-10.5")

However, this is not a proper replacement for the lost menu item in Emacs 23 because set-face-attribute is not a command.

(defun fix-broken-emacs-23 ()
"Command to replace bug introduced into emacs 23"
(set-face-attribute 'default (selected-frame) :font "Consolas-10.5"))

You might want to rename it, but this provides you the command that you want.  Just add it to .emacs.
 It is an elisp function, and one has to eval this _expression_ to get the job done.


PS:  Drew, thanks for the rant.  It give me quite a bit of satisfaction.
