I had no problem running that command in Mathematica 4.2.1.0 under Windows XP. You didn't say what platform you were using.) The tick mark labvels were the larger size as requested without overlapping one another, both at the default image size and even when I reduced the image size considerably. Eventually, of course, if you sufficiently shrink the image size, then the tick mark labels will overlap -- no matter what the setting for FontSize. By any chance were you recreating a Plot output in a notebook where the image size had already been reduced, either manually or by a non-default value of ImageSize?
