Set default histo axis font size?

Hi all,
I’m wondering if the default axis font size can be set globally? (or even on individual
histograms). I didn’t see anything in TAxis.
I recently went to version 5.08 and the fonts all seem smaller.

Also, a lot of times the histogram title overlaps on the y-axis exponent. Is there a way to make the exponent display in a different location?

The global settings are done via gStyle. A simple grep in TStyle.h gave me all the font related global settings. They are:

   void             SetLabelFont(Style_t font=62, Option_t *axis="X");
   void             SetTitleFont(Style_t font=62, Option_t *axis="X"); 
   void             SetStatFont(Style_t font=62) {fStatFont=font;}
   void             SetStatFontSize(Float_t size=0)  {fStatFontSize=size;}
   void             SetTitleFontSize(Float_t size=0)   {fTitleFontSize=size;}
