Yes, that is beyond the basic textstyle size.

Careful though, displaystyle and textstyle do not necessarily imply
different sizes, but different spacing. The size difference only occurs in
subformulae, e.g. inside frac{}{}.

You probably don't want to hear this, but it would all be much easier in
LaTeX: instead of fiverm you might use footnotesize or tiny and get exactly
what you want.
