Check the given theme you are using as well.  Themes for windowmaker can
change the font size.  However, these font sizes should only affect the
window titles, and windowmaker utilities and such.  GNOM/Gtk
applications usually use a .gtkrc / something else for configuring fonts
and themes and such.

If netscape has large fonts, the place to change this is under:

I use a 14pt times.. but this is a 21" monitor..  ;)~
