Re: Fonts for Emacs on Windows2000

Have you tried defun mouse-set-font ? My emacs (on windows) comes with 
<S-down-mouse-1> bound to it. Here is the help string:

mouse-set-font is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `term/w32-win'.
(mouse-set-font &rest FONTS)

Select a font.
If `w32-use-w32-font-dialog' is non-nil (the default), use the Windows
font dialog to get the matching FONTS. Otherwise use a pop-up menu
(like Emacs on other platforms) initialized with the fonts in
`w32-fixed-font-alist'. (Peter F. Brown) wrote in message
