Large point sizes are used to make posters and
banners. I have never used that large of font in groff
but I have used that large of font in ghostscript.  I
thought groff would only use points up to 36pts.  It
would sure be nice if it used larger sizes.  What's
the largest size groff will use and does it very with
the macro?
