Not possible with regular options, all menus uses the default windows appeareance settings. You will need to do with owner-draw functions. This is a complex task.

Jaime is right. You need to implement owner drawn menu to achive what you want. There is also an article in MSDN which you can refer to. This one has many different examples and you can look at the section titled "Setting Fonts for Menu-Item Text Strings" in this page.
