For example, ListPlot[{1, 2, 3}, PlotStyle -> PointSize[0.04], AxesLabel -> {Text[Style["i", Italic]], Text[Style["M'(i)", Italic]]}] Mariusz >>> On 8/30/2007 at 2:38 AM, in message <fb5olv$92s$1 at smc.twtelecom.net>, Krzysztof Lebecki<lebecki-hates-SPAM at ifpan.edu.pl> wrote: > Hi everybody, > > > > I want to make a plot with cute axis labels.
