In Word where it lists the size of the Font, I think in gives values from 8 to 72, try actually typing a number in the the Font Size box next to the drop down arrow, for example I typed in the number 400 and got a huge letter displayed in the Word Document.

Word will allow much larger type than it advertises.  Select your font, then type the point size you want to use.  My copy of Word 2007 only offers 72 points as its biggest character size, however, I was able to enter 720 in the size column (ten times the 72 points advertised) which produced a capital "A" big enough to almost entirely fill an 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper.  The max size I can use 1638 points.
