Yes, it does matter. To change the size of the font for a field you need to set the fields
default appearance setDefaultAppeance(String devalue). The default appearance string will
look similar to 

"/Helv 12.0 Tf … " 

where the name entry before the Tf operator points to the font resource and the number is
the font size.

Make sure that you do set the value prior to setting the field value as the visual appearance
of the field will be calculated from that setting.
