Colourising the messageBox is marvellous . . .

But it would be even more marvellous if one could set
the font and the font size for the messageBox like one can the scriptEditor.

Personally I find the teeny-weeny font size in the messageBox a bother: 
and I have had the font in the
scriptEditor set to 18 for the last 10 years.
