Note that this works well with fairly small fonts for the text under icons on
toolbars; I have large fonts set (Lucida 12, I think) so that my menus are
large enough to see and hit easily; if I were to use text-under-icons I'd
want to have Lucida 8 or so there, because the text isn't primarily there to
enlarge the area of the button, but to identify it.
In other words, with a separate font setting for text-under-icon ... ... the
one we already _have_, it'd be pretty darn usable. Hot damn, you learn
something new every day. (And now I can see much better that texts like
"Previous Unread Message" should be shorter, with a longer tooltip, like in
Peter's most recent patch.
_Now_ I like it :)
Don't worry, 't ain't no shame to be stupid - ol' mouse.
