Key           ˜Font Size...
Value         "ccrr"x
              cc = number of cols 
              rr = number of rows 
              (hexadecimal values)
Description   contains the default font 
              size for new text windows 
Created       After pressing the Save 
              button in the font dialog

The value of this key is only used for new text windows. To open a window 
with a specific size you may 
   *  save the current value of the key 
   *  set the key to the needed value 
   *  open the text window 
   *  and restore the value of the key 
 (see Start a VIO session with a specific font size for an example) 
 Warning:  The name of this key is language dependent! For example in 
           German OS/2 versions, the name of this key is 
           Schrif˜tartgröße...; in Spanish OS/2 versions, it's Tamaqo del 
           ˜font...! (The name seems to be equal to the menu entry for the 
           popup menu.)
