Hi Stephen,

Nano does not control the font size of the terminal program, the
terminal program does that.  So the answer to your question varies
depending on which terminal program you are using.  For example, in
xterm (and xfterm I believe), you can hold control and right mouse
click to bring up a menu which allows some font size manipulation.  In
the kde konsole program you can click on the menu for Settings->font,
and gnome terminal as Jordi mentioned uses ctrl- + and ctrl -.  But
again, nano does not control your font size.  I hope this helps.
