Only if you do it wrong 8-].

Read the section on "Frame Parameters" and X resources in the Emacs
Reference Manual.

Run the function 'frame-parameters' to get a list of all the the
attributes of the current frame.  Type (frame-parameters) in the
scratch buffer, press Ctrl-j right after that expression and it will
print out a list of all the current parameters for that frame.

Have fun
