Orientation of characters in FrameLabel

Hello again MathGroup:

Buoyed by the success my previous query to this group brought, I wonder if
someone out there can point out to me what I am doing wrong in FrameLabel.

My instruction to Mathematica is

ListPlot[tableOfPairsOfNumbers,  Frame -> True, AxesOrigin -> {0, 0},
  FrameLabel -> {"x-label", "y-label"}]

The x-label comes out fine.  The y-label has the characters in order bottom
to top as expected, but each character is right side up, instead of having
been rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise, so that the labels appear as:

l
e
b
a
l
-
y


          x-label

Seems to be occurring systematically.

I confess I am a newbie to Mathematica 4 and for that matter dont have much
experience w Mathematica, so maybe (again) I am missing something obvious.

(Mathematica 4.0.1.0, mac)

Thanks in advance; a copy of any response to me, ses at bnl.gov, would be
greatly appreciated

steve
