"Salem Bouhairie" <SALEMB at CIVIL.Lan.McGill.CA> McGill University Civil Engineering [mg8844] Division symbol in Graphical Plots writes as below line ******** Salem: I think that you need Mathematica Version 3.x instead of Version 2.2.

But on the graphical output of these plots, I see dashes instead of a solid horizontal line to represent the division symbol, within the label, e.g I see Ci ; I want Ci . -- ____ Cs Cs I noticed that Mathematica usually prints out expressions in an approximation to standard mathematical notation, e.g. In[1]:= (a + b)/(x + y) Out[1]:= a + b _________ x + y How can I get this solid bar as the division symbol within the framelabel or axeslabel?
