Best way to globally change console font?

Best way to globally change console font?
I was trying to globally change the console font from the default 8x16 font to an 8x14 font, so that for all users I could have more lines on the screen and more characters per line.

Is /etc/rc.conf the proper place to do this? I ask this because when I change the font in /etc/rc.conf to another unicode font that I like (drdos8x14 or cp850-8x14), upon reboot the console font temporarily changes to my desired font during the boot messages, however when the login screen appears, the font reverts back to what I think is the old LatArCyrHeb-16 font. This can be seen most easily by choosing an extreme font for /etc/rc.conf, such as LatArCyrHeb-08.

I wonder if this behaviour is expected? I think it's coming from /usr/bin/unicode_start, when /etc/profile is executed, but I can't read scripts well enough to understand what is going on.
