I'm a little surprised. With a standard Axes plot it does not seem possible to get the zero ticks labeled. Plot[1 - x^2, {x, 0, 1}]; Extending the lower plot range and even explicitly labeling the ticks still does not work. Plot[1 - x^2, {x, 0, 1}, Ticks -> {Table[{i, i}, {i, 0, 1, 0.2}], Table[{i, i}, {i, 0, 1, 0.2}]}, PlotRange -> {{-0.05, 1}, {-0.05, 1}}]; But using a Frame (which is generally better anyway) and extending the lower plot range will label the zero points. Plot[1 - x^2, {x, 0, 1}, Frame -> True, PlotRange -> {{-0.01, 1}, {-0.01, 1}}]; If you don't want to show the entire Frame you can use... Plot[1 - x^2, {x, 0, 1}, Frame -> {True, True, False, False}, PlotRange -> {{-0.01, 1}, {-0.01, 1}}]; David Park djmp at earthlink.net http://home.earthlink.net/~djmp/ From: ptv-list at socilogy.osu.edu [mailto:von-hippel.1 at osu.edu] To: mathgroup at smc.vnet.net In a 2-dimensional plot, Mathematica typically does not label the origin. I would like X=0 to be labeled as "0." Is this possible?
