Well, first, I was responding to José, not to you.  Second it wasn't
specifically asking about print font sizes.  Third, this is all out of
gnucash's control -- we just call into gtkhtml and gnome-print, and they
pull their configurations from gnome control center.

Alternatively, there's probably some gtkrc-2.0 file you could modify
to set the fonts, but I have no idea what they are.
