You can change the faces emacs uses to fontify special sections of the code.
E.g. here I've changed the colors:

 	    (set-face-foreground        font-lock-comment-face  "FireBrick")
            (set-face-foreground        font-lock-string-face   "DarkOrchid")
            (set-face-foreground        font-lock-keyword-face  "DarkGreen")
            (set-face-foreground        font-lock-function-name-face    "Navy")
            (set-face-foreground        font-lock-variable-name-face "Magenta")
            (set-face-foreground        font-lock-reference-face 

Obviously, you'd prefer to use non-color options such as:

(make-face-bold font-lock-function-name-face)

but see make-face-bold-italic and all the other face editing commands
