```Martin Heimann responded to an earlier question with:
--------------------------------------
This is an old shortcoming of Mathematica und I'm not aware if it has been
corrected in Version 4. Look
at the simple case of two stacked diagrams:

Show[GraphicsArray[{
{Plot[Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}, DisplayFunction -> Identity]},
{Plot[10000 Sin[x], {x, 0, 2 Pi}, DisplayFunction -> Identity]}
}],
DisplayFunction -> \$DisplayFunction]

The fact that one cannot stack different plots over the same x-axis
without trial and error is a serious shortcoming of Mathematica.

--------------------------------

If 4.0 has a nice solution to this problem I am not aware of it.  The most
convenient work around I can think of it to manually force the use of a
longer string for one of the tick marks on the vertical axis.  I do this
below by using
"    1"  as a tick mark on the vertical axis.

Show[GraphicsArray[{
{Plot[Sin[x],{x, 0, 2 Pi},
DisplayFunction -> Identity,
Ticks -> {Automatic, {{1, "    1"}, {0.5,0.5},{-0.5,-0.5},{-1,-1}}}]},
{Plot[10000 Sin[x], {x, 0, 2Pi},DisplayFunction -> Identity]}}],
DisplayFunction -> \$DisplayFunction];

Perhaps GraphicsArray should have an option to ensure all the axes line up.
