Ugly fonts in GTK 1.2 Apps

In Ubuntu (and perhaps other distributions), the menus in GTK apps may have a huge, ugly, and nearly unreadable font.

To somewhat fix this, edit /etc/gtk/gtkrc.utf-8 and change the fontset definition.
style "default-text-better" {
fontset = "-bitstream-charter-medium-r-normal-*-*-100-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1,\

class "GtkWidget" style "default-text-better"

This will fix the menus, at least.
