Hi Everybody.

    I am using Python for an inhouse tool that runs on irix and WinNT.  I needed to
popup some message dialogs so I used the dialogs provided by Tkinter, ie, the
tkMessageBox.  On irix, the appearance of the dialogs are really ugly since the font
is 'Times 18'.  I want to change the font of the dialogs but I can't find how I can
do it !

    I look at the available options for the tkMessageBox at
http://w1.132.telia.com/~u13208596/tkintrobook/standard-dialogs.htm.  None of them
let me change the font.   Then I looked in the code of tkMessageBox.py to find that
the dialogs are completely done in Tcl/Tk and the 'Times 18' is hardcoded in a file
called msgbox.tcl.

    How can I change this font ?  Thank you for you help !
