how to set font size to Times New Roman 14pt in pdflatex


I am preparing my report using pdflatex. According to the specification given, the font must be Times New Roman 14pt. I googled and found that \usepackage{times} could be used. I also read in wiki books that \Large will set the font size to 14pt if the default size is 11pt. But it was also given that the font size for \Large may be varying according the document class. I am using document class report. I am not sure if setting \Large will make the font size to 14pt.

When googling I found a command \fontsize. But I couldn't find proper documentation to use it. It would be great if get some information on how to set the font style and size.

Thank You!

Code:
\Large
This should indeed give you 14pt.
Here is a nice discussion of fonts in latex.
