setting highlight color and font size
Posted:

I'm running Mathematica 9.01 under Mountain Lion X.8.3, and have 3 questions to which I haven't been able to find answers:
* When some text, or a cell is selected the highlight background color is now a light blue; where do I change that default? I don't recog nize anything in Option Inspector that does that.
* The Input command produces a box into which one can type something; I would like to change the default font and size of what is typed to something more easily readable. Where is that done?
* In the Input box, if I type in some word, Mathematica does not consider that to be either a string or numeric (StringQ and NumericQ both produce 'False'). So what is it, and how does one learn an object's type other than by testing?
Thanks for the help.
