The fontsizes of 10pt, 11pt and 12pt are by default standard for all latex classes. it's a little bit difficult to change them to another value, like 14pt.
Latex
You need latex-package extsizes, available at CTAN or often part of your local latex installation. To get the whole directory use anonymous-ftp at ftp.dante.de:
   cd /tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/other
   binary
   get extsizes.zip
install all in /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/extsizes or in your local in /usr/local/share/texmf/tex/latex/extsizes or in your home-dir .TeX
do a texhash to update the tex-tree.
now you are able to choose document-wide fontsizes like 8pt, 9pt, 14pt, 17pt and 20pt. Edit the tex-file by hand and choose only the line which defines the used class:
   \documentclass[11pt,english]{article}
-> \documentclass[14pt,english]{extarticle}
if you use the article class.

available are the classes

  1. extarticle
  2. extbook
  3. extletter
  4. extreport
