Increase font size

Sometimes the question is raised how to get bigger font sizes than the standard LaTeX command \Huge provides (see: font sizes).
It can easily done by using the \fontsize command followed by \selectfont. If unusual sizes are used the fix-cm package should be loaded. A small example for demonstration:

\fontsize{60}{70}\selectfont Huge text

That’s also a possibility to choose an intermediate size, for instance if \tiny gets too small and \scriptsize gets too big.

This topic was discussed in the LaTeX Community Forum, on and on Matheplanet.
