I have a question about using the ShowLegend package. I have created a "heat map" type of graph, and want to place a key next to the graph, indicating how the colours relate to numerical values. This can be done using the ShowLegend package- the Documentation Center suggests something like this:

Needs["PlotLegends`"]

ShowLegend[
DensityPlot[Sin[x y], {x, 0, \[Pi]}, {y, 0, \[Pi]}, Mesh -> False,
PlotPoints -> 30], {ColorData["LakeColors"][1 - #1] &, 10, " 1",
"-1", LegendLabel->"Legend Title", LegendTextSpace->5, LegendPosition -> {1.1, -.4}}]

Which works fine. But the text in the label is incredibly small- does anyone know how to make it bigger? Also, is it possible to add intermediate numerical values to the key, rather than just the smallest and largest e.g. adding "0" in the middle.

Joe.
