Hello, all...

I have been using Mathematica for a number of year and have become
reasonably proficient with it and familiar with most of its
idiosyncracies. I use a Macintosh and, until very recently, was using
Mathematica version 4.2 on OS X 10.1.5. One of the idiosyncracies that I'd
gotten used to was the Mac front end's inability to properly rotate
text on a plot's y-axis, but having it print OK on a Postscript

Recently I upgraded my operating system to OS X 10.3.3 and Mathematica to
version 5. I was amazed to find that rotated text not only doesn't
work right in the front end, but it won't print correctly either on
the very same Postscript printers I've been using for a couple of

Is this really the case or (more likely) am I overlooking something
simple? Any suggestions about what I might be doing wrong will be
greatly appreciated.
