  You can enlarge all used fonts using obconf. If You want to enlarge
  titlebar icons too, You need to edit files
  /usr/share/themes/<YOUR_THEME>/openbox-3/*.xbm using gimp.

It shouldn't be necessary to enlarge fonts this way. You should be able to
change your Xft.dpi resource and have it work in all applications. I don't
know whether this actually works or not.
