I would try Subtitle Workshop first. It's free. The help says something about setting font size, but specificially about srt. Worth a try.

The SRT file is a text file, and doesn't contain the font information. You can change the font used to dray the subtitles when you watch the AVI with any good media player.

In the other hand, the subtitles of a DVD-Video are stored as compressed images in the subpic stream (in .SUP format). You cannot change the font size when you watch the DVD, but if you are converting an AVI to DVD, you can select any font size when you convert the SRT to SUP with Subtitle Creator.

Of course, to enlarge the subtitles of an existing DVD, you have to convert the SUP to SRT (with SubRip or DVDSubEdit), recreate a new SUP with Subtitle Creator, demux and remux all streams, and reimport the modified title in the original DVD (in you want to keep the menus or extras). It's a long and relatively difficult process.
