Plot[Max[0, Sin[x]], {x, 0, 2 \[Pi]}, PlotStyle -> Directive[Thick, Orange], Method -> {"AxesInFront" -> False}] David Park djmpark at comcast.net http://home.comcast.net/~djmpark/ From: AES [mailto:siegman at stanford.edu] I'm Plot[]ing two functions, using PlotStyle->{{Thick, Blue}, {Thick, Orange}] Both functions run along on top of the x axis (i.e., have y(x)=0) for part of their range. In these regions, the black axis line shows through -- or on top of? -- both curves. The Blue curve is dark enough that you don't notice this; but with the Orange curve -- or maybe a Green one -- it looks terrible. Are the axes drawn before or after the curves? (I can see arguments both ways on which of these ought to be the default.) Or are the Colors in the PlotStyle translucent? Any simple way to switch this behavior?
