Have a look at
<where/ever/it/livesinyourdsitro>/fluxbox/styles/<YourStyle> ...

In my case
Code:                       -*-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-*-10-

window.justify:                 Right

toolbar.font: -*-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-*-10-100-75-75-m-60-iso8859-*
window.font: -misc-8x8\ system\ font-medium-r-normal--9-90-100-100-m-100-iso8859
menu.title.font:  -*-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-*-10-100-75-75-m-60-iso885
menu.frame.font:                -*-lucida-medium-r-normal-*-10-100-*-*-*-*-iso88
Or play with ~/Xresources and/or ~/Xdefaults ...
