One of the little known things about text used in graphics (PlotLabels, 
FrameLabels, etc.) is that they understand StandardForm strings. This means 
that if you add color, typesetting, and other features to the strings as 
long as you apply the change inside the quotes. So if you want to move the 
labels a small amount, you can use an AdjustmentBox (Alt-arrow on Windows).

If you want complete control over the labels, you should use a Text 
primitive in place of FrameLabel.
