I don't know about MS Word XP, but in Word 97 you can just type in any figure you like up to 999 point.

You can also increase the size of highlighted text, one point at a time, by using the "Control + [" combination (without the quotes) or decrease it by using the "Control + ]" combination.

I didn't know about this (don't need letters that large) but just tried Peter & paperman27's idea. It works on my copy of Word XP.
