@cindex Core Text, on Mac OS X
In Mac OS X 10.5 and later, Emacs uses a Core Text based font backend
by default. If you prefer the older font style, enter the following
at the command-line before starting Emacs:
@example
% defaults write org.gnu.Emacs FontBackend ns
@end example

Non-nil means the menu-bar is hidden by default, but appears if you
move the mouse pointer over it. (Requires Mac OS X 10.6 or later.)
@item ns-use-native-fullscreen
This only affects Mac OS X 10.7 or later, where it is non-@code{nil} by default,
which means to use native fullscreen support. Set it to @code{nil}
to use the older style of fullscreen, which may work better with
multiple monitors, but lacks the tool bar.
@c FIXME what does this actually _do_?
@item ns-use-srgb-colorspace
This only affects Mac OS X 10.7 or later, where it is non-@code{nil} by default.
Note that it does not apply to images, only to Emacs colors.
