Under tvtwm you can change the fonts in an already established window (eg, and xterm or emacs) by holding down the "Control" key on your keyboard, holding down the right button on your mouse, and selecting the font you'd like.

You can also specify which font to use on the invocation of a window:

    xrsh cs xterm -font courb14

Or you can permanently change your default fonts by putting an entry in your .Xdefaults file

    *font:      *-courier-bold-r-normal-*-*-140-*
    *Font:      *-courier-bold-r-normal-*-*-140-*
and making sure the xrdb line is uncommented in your .xinitrc file.

Fonts under netscape are controlled via [Edit] => Preferences. Under Appearance, select Fonts. There you can choose what font to and size use for both variable and fixed width fonts.
