i am working with Mathematica 4.0. 
I plot the following function:
Plot[x*3, {x, 0, 10}, Frame -> {True, True, True, True}, 
  FrameLabel -> {"a", "b", "c", "d"},
  FrameTicks -> {{{12, 
          "tick1", {0.006, 0}, {GrayLevel[0.],
AbsoluteThickness[0.25]}}}, {{17, 
          "tick2", {0.006, 0}, {GrayLevel[0.], 
            AbsoluteThickness[0.25]}}}, {{12, 
          "tick3", {0.006, 0}, {GrayLevel[0.], 
            AbsoluteThickness[0.25]}}}, {{12, 
          "tick4", {0.006, 0}, {GrayLevel[0.],

The problem is now, that the tickmark on the left edge does not appear.
If I set 
a number (for example 1.7) as label, the tickmark can be seen.
It seems as if the graphics-directive of the string overwrites the
graphic directive
of the tickmark.
The problem is specific for Mathematica 4.0. In Mathematica 3.0 there is
no such problem.
Does anyone know, how this can be solved?

Thank You
