Robert,

The limitation of the size of your text for the max and min marker is
your hardware font. To increase the size of your max/min markers
further, use sw fonts for the "hwflgs". Alternatively, you can use the
special symbols S12 and S13 (see the hlsym phelp) instead of text fonts.

As an aside, you can view the special symbols available by running
the "plotsyms" command to produce a reference table such as:

% plotsyms
Enter device: xw

 0 =3D Change device      1 =3D Markers     2 =3D Line Patterns
 3 =3D Weather Symbols    4 =3D Cloud Type  5 =3D Past Weather
6 =3D Pressure Tendency 7 =3D Sky Cover 8 =3D Icing 9 =3D Special Symbols 10 =3D Turbulence 11 =3D Fronts 12 =3D Special Lines 13 =3D Combo Syms
99 =3D Set Attribute Plotting

Select a symbol type number or type EXIT:9
Enter symbol color or type EXIT:4
Enter symbol size or type EXIT:9
Enter symbol line width or type EXIT:1
Enter frame color, 0 for none, or type EXIT:0
Enter background color, 0 for none, or type EXIT:0
