Using CWnd::SetFont... Limitation On Font Size?

I am using the following code to set the font of a list box control, but it seems to have a limitation on the smallest size the font can have. I need the font to be about halg as large as 12, but if I lower the number below 12 (let's say 1), the font appears with a pixel-size of 12. What's happening? How can I make the font smaller? Also, can different entries in a list box have different fonts (i.e., some bold, others not?)
Thanks. . .

LOGFONT lf;                             // Used to create the CFont.
memset(&lf, 0, sizeof(LOGFONT));        // Clear out structure.
lf.lfHeight = 12;                      // Request a 12-pixel-high font
strcpy(lf.lfFaceName, "Courier");       // Request font
ListBoxFont.CreateFontIndirect(&lf);    // Create the font.
m_capfixture.SetFont(&ListBoxFont);     // set the font
