Many of us have noted, and even discussed on this group, Mathematica's 
inexplicable -- or is it just obstinate? -- refusal to put labelled Tick 
marks at the origin, even when there's plenty of room for them and no 
interfering axis in the way, or even an explicit request to do so, e.g.

   PlotRange->{{0, 1}, {-2.1, 2.1}};
   Ticks->{{0.5, 1.0}, {-2, -1, 0, 1, 2}};

This note is just to put on record a minor gimmick that most Mathematica 
experts probably already know:  if you convert the second line to

   Ticks->{{0.5, 1.0}, {-2, -1, {0.001,"0"}, 1, 2}};

you'll get just what you want (unless of course Mathematica decides to 
strike back at you in some hidden way elsewhere as punishment for your  
sneaking around its rigid rules and regulations).
