I have increased size of text to something I can read comfortable. When I delete output and evaluate notebook again with any changes made, the output text size returns to eyestrain inducing size.

How do you go about increasing the size of the text? (There are various ways.) – DavidC Feb 22 '13 at 3:21
I have been using Format > Size > Larger (or pick a particular size from drop down menu) after selecting all. The guidance I found on style sheets looked like I would need to leave a trail of bread crumbs to ever find my way back out . . . – rexacoatl Feb 22 '13 at 3:47
You might use the Window > Magnification > ... menu to enlarge the overall size everything displayed in a Notebook window. I have poor vision and I normally work with at a magnification of 150%. Makes both input and output easier to read. – m_goldberg Feb 22 '13 at 5:50

This will plot out a phrase in four different sizes. The syntax for changing the size is just


Table[Graphics[Style[Text["how about this?", {0, 0}], size]], {size, 
  10, 40, 10}]
