Windows Logonui uifile.txt

I am in the middle of creating my own login for Windows XP and I am using logonstudio.  I have created the subsequent logonuiX.exe and would like to do the following.  After using logonstudio to change "to begin,  click your user name" to "to begin,  click your user name to the right". Given that is it about as far as it goes with logonstudio.  Now how do I change the font color and font of "to begin,  click your user name to the right to color of black and the font to tahoma from Arial?

Hello Round_Butte  as far as I know you cannot actually change the colours other than defaults unless you use some kind of theme.
You can create a new text message that appears on the welcome screen.

this may help you

How do I change the font of "to begin,"  ?
Hi I am not really sure these fonts can be changed without using some program.
Maybe some other EE know about this for certain.

Changing Font Settings
Access the Display Properties dialog box
Select the Settings tab
At the bottom of the dialog box, click ADVANCED
The Monitor and Graphics dialog box relative to your computer appears.

Select the General tab

In the DPI setting pull-down list, select the appropriate size

OPTIONAL: In the Compatibility portion of the window, select from three display options:    

Restart the computer before applying the new display settings  

Apply the new display settings without restarting      

Ask me before applying the new display settings

I figured it out on my own.  It is the strings portion of the logonui file.  You refrence it in the uifile as cstr(1)-cstr(3).  thank you and  close the question
