Hi Sid,

thanks for your suggestion.

In fact I did not put "" on Subscript because I entered the expression
using the palette. Only copying the Mathematica code into the e-mail
made the quotation marks appear.

Originally I had:

ListPlot[Table[Random[],{10}],AxesLabel->{Subscript[f, RF], \
"y-axis"}]

which still gives an x-axis label in light grey instead of black and a
mix of FontSlants, which was not the case in previous versions of
Mathematica.


However, your suggestion shows how a workaround could do the job by
using Style and having no quotation marks. This works fine for me now.

The FontSlant is still not ok but I see a mail treating this subject.


Thank you very much and kind regards,
Thomas.
