Apparently, it is not possible to invoke simultaneously both
options that determine the point size and the colour in PlotStyle
when using it in ListPointPlot3D.  Thus, while

         ListPointPlot3D[{{0,0,0}}, PlotStyle->{PointSize[0.02]}]


         ListPointPlot3D[{{0,0,0}}, PlotStyle->{Hue[1]}]

work correctly, the combined version

        ListPointPlot3D[{{0,0,0}}, PlotStyle->{PointSize[0.02], Hue[1]}]

only displays the point with the desired size (or the desired colour, if
using PlotStyle->{Hue[1],PointSize[0.02]} ). Sometimes, the combined
version does not even show a point at all, but the frame only, giving me
the impression that in vers. 6.0 ListPointPlot3D is still a rather unstable
command. Perhaps, however, there are other ways of setting the
point size and colour in ListPointPlot3D, so any hints will be very

Let me add that the 2D analogue

    ListPlot[{{0,0}}, PlotStyle->{PointSize[0.02], Hue[1]}]

works fine.

Many thanks in advance,
