Thanks. This solved my problem. – NVaughan May 10 '13 at 12:19

There is a general way to change any font you see in Emacs. Move point to the text in question and hit C-u C-x =. You will get a *Help* buffer with something like:

There are text properties here:
  face                 font-lock-variable-name-face

The face name is a link that you can open. This gives you a description of the face, with the first line being:

Face: font-lock-variable-name-face (sample) (customize this face)

customize this face is a link that takes you to the appropriate Customize buffer.

Thanks, but unfortunately that keybinding doesn't work for me. – NVaughan May 10 '13 at 12:19
