Finally figured it out (was: Default fonts for applications?)

Well, I finally figured it out:

1.  $HOME/.gtkrc-kde gets overwritten every time I log in,
    so my changes disappeared before they could take effect.

2.  I noticed the following environment variable setting:


    So, I created a $HOME/.gtkrc that contained the "style" and "class"
    statements.  That file doesn't get overwritten.

3.  The last "class" line should have been this:

      class "*" style "default-text"

    (I had accidentally typed "default").

Based on these insights, I was able to get the fonts I desire in
mozilla, gqview, and lots of other apps.

Thanks again to you folks who pointed out that mozilla uses gtk after
all, which got me back on the right track.

And now ... is any of this documented anywhere?  If so, where?
