Hi Gregory,

You can use Style[] in your legend text without problems.

Modifying an example from the online help

Needs["PlotLegends`"]
ListPlot[Table[{x, f[x]}, {f, {Sin, Cos, Log}}, {x, 0, 10, 0.5}],
 PlotLegend -> {
   Style["Sine", FontFamily -> "Arial", Bold, FontSize -> 12],
   Style["Cosine", FontFamily -> "Arial", Bold, FontSize -> 12],
   Style["Log", FontFamily -> "Arial", Bold, FontSize -> 12]},
 LegendBorder -> Opacity[0], ShadowBackground -> Opacity[0],
 LegendBackground -> Opacity[0], LegendPosition -> {-0.8, -0.54},
 LegendTextSpace -> 6, LegendSize -> 0.5
 ]

I found that this package has always been tedious and have recently
been using Epilog instead of legend.  YMMV but it's easier to combine
colours and indicate what dashed, solid & dotted curves mean.

Regards,

Dave.
