hi,
although i have done it on an OmniaII, yet i guess it is applicable on win6.5 regardless of the ppc.
ok,
i searched too much for a cab, or any to control start menu font. change sys font is available, menus but not the start menu.
for no reason i know, the start menu has its own control. i was able to make it 3 or 4 or 5 columns , but not the font

any way manually, go to win folder, locate the following 2 files:

StartMenu_GridScene_480x800.cpr
StartMenu_GridScene_480x800.cpr


they are the files controlling how u see start menu
then open both or any of them - i modified both- u will get the following


=================
<Form Width="480" Height="800">
<StartMenu_GridScene ID="Scene">

<GridView ID="Start Menu Items List" Top="0" Left="0" Width="480" Height="696" Columns="3" Scrollable="TRUE" HexagonGrid="TRUE" HorizontalWrapAround="TRUE">
<Image ID="Selection" Left="0" Top="-30" Width="192" Height="158" Source=".\StartMenu_Selection.png" />
<Layer ID="GridItem" Width="192" Height="166" OnAction ="GridItemAction">
<Layer ID="Normal">
<Image ID="Image" Left="51" Top="4" Width="90" Height="90" ScaleStyle="Fit" />

<Text ID="Text" Left="18" Top="98" Width="156" Height="68" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="7" HorizontalAlignment="Center" VerticalAlignment="Top" Wrap="True" Trimming="EllipsisCharacter" ForeColor="#00FFFFFF" BackColor="#00000000" />
</Layer>
</Layer>

<Layer ID="NoItems">
<Text ID="Text" Width="480" Height="40" FontFamily="Tahoma" FontSize="10" ForeColor="#00FFFFFF" Wrap="False" HorizontalAlignment="Center" Trimming="Character" InnerTextType="Resource">shellres.dll,22596</Text>
</Layer>

</GridView>

</StartMenu_GridScene>
</Form>
======================
