The THotkey is simply a wrapper around the Windows HOTKEY control. It gets it's font size and style from the user's display settings, using one of the system values (see ComCtrls.pas, procedure TCustomHotKey.AdjustHeight for an indication). IOW, you shouldn't try to change it, as it's a system-wide setting that the user has configured.

THotKey does not publish the protected 'font' property it inherits from 
'TControl' but you can access it utilizing a kind of a hack. Find a more thorough 
explanation here:

  TAccessHotkey = class(THotKey);

procedure TForm1.FormCreate(Sender: TObject);
  TAccessHotkey(HotKey1).Font.Size := 20;
  TAccessHotkey(HotKey1).Font.Style := [fsBold];
  if HotKey1.AutoSize then begin
    HotKey1.AutoSize := False;
    HotKey1.AutoSize := True;

Coming to think of it, since the control also inherits the 'ParentFont' property 
which is True by default, an alternative would be to modify the parenting 
control's font. İ.e. the form which the HotKey is on.

Can user control asp:TextBox font size by using browser text size setting
Virtually all elements on my web-pages font-size can be controlled by the user changing the text-size on the browser.   This does not work with the textbox control.  Is there something I am missing or does the presentation of font-size have to be controlled by CSS class through the use of themes.  I would rather not have to explain to the web user that they need to go to another page and choose a special theme to accomodate their text size choice. You can check the browser resolution on page preInit and then set a specific theme for your textboxes if you would...
