Dear Math User Group: I have posted this question before in: http://forums.wolfram.com/mathgroup/archive/2004/Apr/msg00114.html but, I still haven't received an answer from anyone. The following (unevaluated) Mathematica v5 notebook can be easily downloaded from: http://www.tilmarlily.netfirms.com/goldbach/notebook/gpp_040604.nb The notebook should be self explanatory. The difficulty that I'm having with this plot follows: The labels corresponding to the tick marks where the Twin Primes appear, are overlapping. Since the ListPlot Attributes lack an option to rotate the tick mark labels (this is an old handicap that I'm hoping will be fixed soon by the WRI); the user is forced to manipulate the tick mark option in an indirect (and laborious) way, in order to rotate the labels. So far I have managed to slightly rotate the text labels corresponding to the prime numbers on the top, and bottom X-axes. Unfortunately; the tilted labels appear inside the frame of the plot, rather than outside (like those associated with the Y-Axes). My question is: How can I overcome this hurdle so that the labels on the X-Axes (top and bottom) turn out outside the frame? Thank you for your help!
