Hey Harm,

I know I brought it up before, but that GTK widget for fonts is so nice, it 
made me think about it again.

Couldn’t we take the color selection portion of the board menu and put it in a 
function.  Have that function be defined one way for XAW and have it defined in 
another way for GTK utalizing the GTK Color picker?

Mind you, I haven’t looked at the code yet as to how it was implimented.
I just remember we were stuck with our current color picker for XAW support.
