The maximum value for nSize is 127 points. There are 72 points in 1 inch.

In general, you should change the FontName property before you set size and style attributes with the FontSize, FontBold, FontItalic, FontStrikethru, and FontUnderline properties. However, when you set TrueType fonts to smaller than 8 points, you should set the point size with the FontSize property, next set the FontName property, and then set the size again with the FontSize property. The Windows environment uses a different font for TrueType fonts that are smaller than 8 points.

Available fonts vary according to your system configuration and printing devices. Font-related properties can be set only to values for which fonts exist.
