I have made good progress in allowing the user to resize all fonts used 
by JMC, but this ends up touching a lot of UI code. There are also still 
some bugs to resolve with the implementation. I agree with Mario that 
this is risky to do shortly before release.

As a quick fix, we could remove or limit the use of the editor font, at 
least in tables. In the MBean Browser example cited in the bug, I don't 
see a need to use the editor font for the value column.

Marcus, what do you think?
