Setting font sizes without a session manager

I'm running Xubuntu without GDM and find that when I use Xfce4 and its
session manager, I can set font sized using the "User Interface" dialog.
But when I shift to Openbox, the display fonts in menu bars and in a
program's display seem to default to a particular size -- larger than
the one I've set in Xfce4. How can I shrink the fonts that appear when I
use openbox (or some other non-session managing window manager)?

With best regards,
