If it is html report output, then you can change the font. ( read about the <h1> and <font> tags in html )

hi sir, it is not html report. it's only text report. i'm going to output it in separate file then change the 1st line of font size.

echo "Hi" >> usr/bin/test    -- this will change the font size. is it possible?
echo "Helo" >> usr/bin/test

The only things you can change about text displayed on the command line are the color and the background color using ANSI escape codes. These aren't supported by all terminals, though. But it's not possible to change the font size for a single line, same as you can't switch to a non-monospaced font.

What you can do is use ASCII art to create larger text.
