[PD] fonts in pd

I have some problems concerning font usage in pd.

1. If I open help files from pd, the object boxes and comments often
   overlap and make it quite unreadable. Changing the default font to
   a smaller size (with the -font flag at startup) doesn't help much,
   as the default size is 10 pt and it can only be changed to 8pt,
   making everything so small that it can't easily be read.

2. In general, I'm not especially happy with the courier bold font,
   since it needs a big font size in order to be readable. I find
   other fonts, like plain helvetica or my console font much easier to
   read even at very small sizes.

My questions:

if (Is there any preconceived method in pd to change the default font
    to something else?)

then {
        how is it done?

else {
        how can it be accomplished by changing the sources?
