Modify font sizes?

Is there any method out there to modify the font sizes available on the Kindle 2? I'm not very satisfied with them - they're either too large or too small, with nothing in between. I was hoping someone might know of a way to change the sizes that isn't too difficult. I know enough to follow directions, but not much more than that.

It can be done, if you jailbreak your Kindle first. Here is the user-friendly hack ("updating" via .bin file).

Before trying anything read the thread or at least read the included readme.txt file carefully! And keep in mind that, if I'm not mistaken, this hack was not tested (nobody gave feedback/confirmation in the hack forum thread) on Kindle 2, but it was confirmed as working on Kindle DX with firmware 2.5.8. So it should work for Kindle 2

This link goes to my post on experiences using the hack on k2i. It works fine but you will need to modify the font prefs file to take out one or two of the available sizes.
