"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

the following jsFiddle sample demonstrates two options:
1. Assign two additional classes to the table (compact to minimize padding/spacing) and a custom one for the font size
2. Set column widths using the colum definition

Errol FarroAuthor Commented:
Can the font of the pagination, search filter, show etc... also be changed to the same font as defined in the class?
Rainer JeschorCommented:
sure. I have updated the jsFiddle.

Basically you can customize the way the elements are generated, the following wraps the top and bottom "tools" inside of the corresponding divs and assigns the classes:
"dom": '<"topcustom"lfr>t<"bottomcustom"ip>'
