I tried, but the menu remain in Charcoal (or may be it is Chicago?
I am on a Mac...) It seems not possible to set the textfont *of the text*
of my button "mypopupmenu", but just the textfont of the btn itself.

Fine, thank you. And the selected line of button "mypopupmenu" is OK too.

I have not tried hierarchical menu at this time: it is secondary,
and I shall see that later...
