I finally discovered what the problem was, at least to some extent. The
following line appears in /etc/dosemu/dosemuconf:

$_X_font = ""           # basename from /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc/*

However, although you can get larger text by inserting some of these
names you also mess up the window, so that underlining looks funny and
other unwanted effects occur. The solution therefore is to leave it
