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?
