Can one change the font size of all annotation in a layer at once?

Ideally, I'd like to change all the font sizes by a certain percentage.
Thanks

Mapping Center Answer:

You can change the font size of all annotation by performing a field calculation on the FontSize field in the Annotation attribute table. The main trick in doing this, though, is that you must be in an Edit Session, otherwise only the FontSize field values will update, and not the annotation object.

To do the calculation, just multiply the field's current value by the percentage increase you would like.  For example:

[FontSize] * 1.25
