Menu bar fonts changeable?

On my Clamshell, Mac OS 10.3.9, the screen is only 800X600. With some programs the menu names fill the menu bar leaving little or no room for such things as the clock. Is there a way to change that font? Tinkertool doesn't do it as it is a system wide change.

I don't think so...

perhaps if you go into the terminal program armed with the proper knowledge... ?

Do you know a programmer for OS X ? ? ? ? ?

Unsanity's Silk will allow you to change the theme font.

Whether or not it's worth possible system instability (it is a haxie) is up to you.

Here's my iBook 466's Panther desktop (and menubar) before :



and after (font changed to Arial Narrow):

johnc: Have you experienced the instability of which you write?

BTW, you only included the 'after' view but I can see the 'before' on my own clamshell.

Aside from your statement about instability, Silk looks like what I wanted to find. Thanks.
