As is the end of many positive Linux stories!

Here's the relevant bit of my .Xdefaults file:

Netscape*XmLGrid*fontList: lucidasans-8
Netscape*foreground: rgb:c0/c0/c0
Netscape*background: rgb:60/60/80
Netscape*XmLGrid.background: rgb:60/60/80
Netscape*XmLGrid.foreground: rgb:c0/c0/c0
Netscape*XmList.background: rgb:60/60/80
Netscape*XmList.foreground: rgb:c0/c0/c0
Netscape*topShadowColor: rgb:30/30/60
Netscape*bottomShadowColor: rgb:30/30/60

You may find that a bit wild for your tastes. For the relevent lines, mental
grep for font. Then you *must*

  xrdb -merge .Xdefaults

unless xdm/gdm do that for you.
