Hello Carlos,
I don't have a 5.2 in front off me, but I can give you a 6.0
suggestion, and perhaps you can backtrack and change it for 5.2. I
often put such things into my init.m

 BaseStyle -> {FontFamily -> "Helvetica", FontSlant -> "Italic",
   FontSize -> 24}

Plot[Nest[Sin, x, 128], {x, 0, 4 Pi}, PlotLabel -> Wiggly,
 AxesLabel -> {Uncle, Grandpa}]
