Changing the Font of the Text for Icon in a List

       This article describes a method for changing the fonts in
an icon list.  Applications can easily emphasize the text to the
right of, above or below the icon. This provides different looks for
lists of the same style.

      Current list controls do not support the changing of the fonts
for the text displayed.  The application has no current means of
emphasizing text in a list.

      The solution is to provide the application with the ability to
change the font for the text on the right of the icon.  This change
can be indicated with the LM_DS_SETLOGICALFONTS message supported by
the Office Vision/2 list control.  The message will indicate the font
to be used through a pointer to a FATTRS structure.
