What are you trying to accomplish by changing the fonts?

Generally speaking you can specify any font available on the box, so long 
as X can find it, since it is an X-default file you are changing.
But results are unpredictable if you choose one very much larger or 
smaller than the default.

You can get a list of fonts on AIX using the
command, which will both long and short names, and you can use
         /usr/bin/X11/xfd  -fn <font_name>
to try to get an indication of how they look,but you'll probably still 
have to experiment with what you use.

I am looking to change the fonts for my Nvevents displays.  The default 
is Rom10.  I am looking for a larger font.  I run AIX 4.3.3.  Where can I
find my other options?
