PlotLabel in 3D

Hallo World!

Where and what should I set (Mathematica 3.0 on Win95) to see the label

  "t=0.5"

on my 3D plot?

Now "t", "=" and "0.5" are written from the same position This can be
traced in PS file produced by Display[] command. For "t" and "0.5" the
font "Times" is used for "=" -> Math1Mono
and PostScript makes moveto to the same position before plotting them.
Not all chars are treated as ASCII.
How can I say to Mathematica:
  Please, don't be SO clever, simply print this string AS IS... 
  or make it with your funny font but correct...

Source:
g1=Plot3D[x^2+y^2,{x,-2,2},{y,-2,2},
  PlotLabel->"t=0.5",
  PlotRegion->{{0.1,0.9},{0.1,0.9}}]


By the way, without PlotRegion some axes labels and PlotLabel are cut by
the bounding box in FrontEnd graphics and are not in the output PS
file. I suppose the area covered by text does not contribute to the
bounding box at all. How can I fix this?


Thanks in advance

Eduard
