A publication I am submitting to has the rather annoying requirement of needing the document title to be size 16pt (and the regular text size being 12pt, which I know how to do). I have absolutely no idea how to change the font size of the title (beyond adding \Large, \LARGE etc. but none of these correspond to 16pt).

How would I go about setting the font size of the title to a specific size?

    Do the publications' style guidelines also specify (a) the distance between two consecutive lines of text, for both the 12pt and 16pt font sizes, (b) whether the title should be set in bold or regular weight, and (c) the font that is to be used (e.g., Times Roman, Helvetica, etc.)?
