From the online help, "RotateLabel is an option for twoâ??dimensional graphics functions which specifies whether labels on vertical frame axes should be rotated to be vertical." For example, In[1]:= Plot[Sin[x], {x, -2*Pi, 2*Pi}, Frame -> True, FrameLabel -> {"x-axis", "This is the function sin x"}, RotateLabel -> True]; [...graphics deleted...] Regards, Jean-Marc
