Dear Math User Group:
I have posted this question before in:
but, I still haven't received an answer from anyone.

The following (unevaluated) Mathematica v5 notebook can be easily
downloaded from:
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

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!
