Have you checked out all the Win95 options for this sort of thing?  
You may find you can adjust winhelp  to a more suitable size.  
However, I admit to not knowing much about these options.

I have the Python documents in RTF, but not a "general" RTF - only as 
the input for "WinHelp" which is not really setup for reading.

What about grabbing the .HTML versions, and either configuring your 
browser of choice to use the big fonts?  Thats the easiest I can come 
up with.

Or else hack the postscript to create larger fonts, and then use some 
postscript viewer/printer.  I know almost nothing about this route, 
but I imagine its not too difficult
