Plot[x,{x,0,1}, AxesLabel-> {\[Alpha]\[Beta], \[Gamma]\[Delta]}] Instead of \[Alpha] ... you can use the key seqauence, escape, a, escape; or paste in from the palette Complete Characters.

But font size and color changes need a bit more work. ------------------------------------------------------------- Allan Hayes Training and Consulting Leicester UK http://www.haystack.demon.co.uk hay at haystack.demon.co.uk voice: +44 (0)116 271 4198 fax: +44(0)116 271 8642
