I thought perhaps an AppleScript droplet could be created that would in BBEdit open the file(s) in which you want to make the change, find and change that font size spec, save and close. If that's possible, that drudge work might also be done via a folder in the Finder that is continually "watched" by the font size find/change AppleScript -- it would run automatically for any file(s) dropped into that folder and the last step of the script would drop them into another, "outbox" Finder folder.
