How about using a different color font, perhaps a medium gray.

Check the attachment here starting on page 9 to see the current "built-in" font sets. You can change the view on the 1150 to see the effect of using the different sizes with zooming. Also, near the end of this test document, you will find a section on using color (ok grayscale for the 1150). Play with the different combinations. If you want the background to change, then you will need to put the 'dream' part inside an (invisible) table using the <td> and color.

By the way, DaleDe has a nice summary of how the diferrent font sizes relate to the built-in sizes. Just check the website link under his signature in any post.
Here is the IMP file I used to determine the relationship of all the font sizes. you might try relative sizes in your font statement.

Edit: I have been asked for the source for this document so here it is. It is crude done quick and dirty with all the style in the main document.
