I wrote in the ~/.emacs file as:

(set-face-background 'menu "LemonChiffon2")
(set-face-foreground 'menu "Brown")
(set-face-font 'menu "-*-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*")

I expected them to set the menu bar appearance.  In Emacs 21.4,
the colors and the font were set as I hoped.  However, in Emacs
22, only the font is not set.

Although the font for the menu bar can be specified with the X
resource as

Emacs*menubar*Font: -*-helvetica-bold-r-*-*-*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-*

, I want to remove it from the resource file since only the one
for Emacs is it.  It enables me to run the real vanilla Emacs by
only typing `emacs -q'.
