Font Sizes greater than 99

In a Smartform or Layout Set, it is not possible to enter a font size larger than 99 (the system won't allow it, and you cannot change it in the corresponding style objects either).

Does anyone know of a way to produce output of characters beyond this limit? One way would be to convert each character to a grid and represent the characters in a large grid, but this would be extremely cumbersome.

For those who are interested, I did the following:

I created an external command in SM69 for the 'banner' command. (Our SAP system runs on AIX). Then in my Smartform, I call the function SXPG_COMMAND_EXECUTE to execute the banner command with the text that I need to create the large letters I am looking for, the total contents of which is passed back as a table in the parameter exec_protocol of the function (which is just the stdout output of the banner command). The text I get back in the table is what I then use for the ouput.
