Thanks, Nick. I must say Michael's Guide, Svend's Introduction, and your
columns help. 

But to say that "Stata's been consistent on that since the late 1980s,"
is like saying all you need to learn English is read the OED, since it
is quite consistent in describing English words since 1879. :-)

Regards,

This is explained and documented under -axis label options-. 

In the manual, see the section [G] axis_label_options; on-line 
see

whelp axis_label_options 

or 

whelp axis label options 

in an -update-d Stata. 

One key is know where to look is to realise that tick options 
are options like -xtick()- and -ytick()- but labelled tick options 
are options like -xlabel()- and -ylabel()-. Stata's been consistent 
on that since the late 1980s.
