Hi John,

Probably the neatest way to do this would be through X resources - into
the appropriate file (mighjt be .Xresources or  .Xdefaults ) put the line


emacs*font: lucidasanstypewriter-12

or whichever font you like.

I'm using XEmacs here - Gnu Emacs has a list of X resources somewhere -
maybe in the FAQ
