Re: Re: Re: PlotLabel - SubscriptBox - Vers.

Hi Carl,

your suggestion works fine with me. Thank you very much for your input.

So in summary:

The FontColor problem was solved by replacing the local copy of 
Default.nb (dated from some previous version of Mathematica) and 
replacing it with a version 6 Default.nb.

The FontSlant problem can be solved with SingleLetterItalics->False and 

Thanks to all who made suggestions to my problem.

Kind regards,
