Wow. How big is your monitor?
On my workstation, that's Monitor[b]s[/]... plural. I've got a pair of 24" 1920x1200 in the wings (running off a spare GTS 250 I had) and center is a 27" 2560x1440 IPS.
At a comfortable seating distance (3 to 4 feet) the default fonts in most OS are too small -- though I started out using large fonts/120 dpi back on Windows 3.1 (well, back then it was called 8514 fonts) as a way to have smoother fonts -- on monitors most people would run 800x600 I ran 1024x768 with large fonts; fonts ended up the same size between the two.
My Media center I've got running Win7's "extra large" -- 200%/196 dpi.
Most native windows applications have no issues and auto-expand just fine. Well written websites will pick it up from the browser settings... but Java programs? Universally they're useless -- sure on things like editors you can usually change the size in the edit box, but that doesn't fix the uselessly tiny menus and dialogs.
Swing in particular tends to be bad for this... well on top of Swing applets just generally sucking in the first place -- Though it plagues just about everything written in Java. See "Sublime" and "Eclipse" -- both of which are pretty much useless to me.

The only thing about Dreamweaver that can be considered professional grade tools are the people promoting it's use.
