I don't understand the FrameLabel syntax used below.  According to the 
docs, the value for the option, when all 4 boundaries of the frame, 
etc., are to be labeled, is { {left, right}, {bottom, top} }.  For example:


The preceding puts those labels where their names lead you to expect. On 
the other hand, the following input...


puts "left" on the bottom, "right" on the left, "bottom" on the top, and 
"top" on the right.

The only non-nested list syntax indicated in the More Information at 
ref/FrameLabel is of the form {bottom, left}.
