I've read that section several times now and it appears there are 3 ways 
to edit the title properties -
customize the titlepage spec file
customize the attribute-set
customize the template

So, it looks like the easiest way to get what I need done is to simply 
change the font-size in the titlepage spec, as you mention above. This is 
what I have now -

  <t:titlepage t:element="chapter" t:wrapper="fo:block"
    <t:titlepage-content t:side="recto" 
      <title t:named-template="component.title"

The font-size was originally "&hsize5;", but the resulting .pdf file does 
not reflect the smaller size font in chapter titles, they are still size 5 
even though the template is set to size 4 (or 3 or anything).

I'm I interpreting the manual incorrectly?
