Changing the menubar font in xemacs

The default menubar font in Ubuntu Feisty sucks – it’s huge and ugly. To change it, add the following to $HOME/.Xresources

Emacs*menubar*font: -*-clean-medium-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Emacs*menu*font: -*-clean-medium-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
Emacs*popup*font: -*-clean-medium-r-*-*-12-*-*-*-*-*-*-*

and execute

$ xrdb -load ~/.Xresources

Restart xemacs and voila. I should have done this ages ago!
