a) this depends on the journal ?
b) since Mathematica 6 the default setting for the labels
    is TraditionalForm and Times, this should be sufficient
    for the most journals
c) I have never seen that a journal want to have a line
    that is not a line and a point that is not the point.
    But Mathematica 6, and 7 are very flexible only
    the tendency to blue colors will cause some problems
