The FontSet, which is used while inputting Japanese using XIM and
which is also used for the menu bar, can be selected using something
!! FontSet for menus when you use --with-xfs or --with-xim=xlib.
Is it also possible to change this FontSet later, after XEmacs has
Currently, if I change the fonts used for normal text within XEmacs at
runtime (using 'set-face-font'), the font used for XIM doesn't change.
For example if I change to a bigger font to be able to read Japanese
better, the font used for XIM still stays tiny and difficult to read.
I.e. while typing a Japanese word or phrase, pressing SPC to convert
to Kanji and selecting the correct Kanji, the characters are small.
After the conversion to Kanji is finished, the characters jump to the
size of the surrounding characters.
If the FontSet used for XIM could be changed at runtime too, this
annoying behaviour could be avoided.
