Change font and font size in Fluxbox

In Fluxbox 1.1 a font and a font size can be changed by editing a overlay file, usually located in ~/.fluxbox/. So just add the following lines to this file and restart fluxboxmenu.title.font: sans-12:bold
menu.frame.font: sans-12:bold
toolbar.clock.font: sans-10:bold
toolbar.workspace.font: sans-12:bold
*font: sans-12
Of course you have to select the font you like or the size.
