Hi Jackie,
Sorry, MAV (Multalign Viewer) does not have the option to use different fonts for different residues… as you probably saw, the Preferences… Appearance options only change the font of all the residues.

To highlight specific residues in MAV, you could draw a box around them to make a region, and then using the Region Browser, change region background color and/or outline color, 

...or you could create a custom header to put a symbol above the column.
