X Window Frontend Menu Font and Colors

I am just starting to run the X frontend for Mathematica on my Sun. The
notebook window appears and works fine, but the font used for the menus
and dialogs is just the small, hard-to-read Motif font against the blue
Motif background. I have tried making changes to the XMathematica 
resource file and to my own .Xdefaults file, but these have had no effect.

Does anyone know how to change the menu fonts or the background colors?
Thanks in advance for any help.
