The third example on the Plot Tickmarks and Gridlines help page - ?plot,tickmarks(tickmarks) - shows how to put labels at specific locations on a plot axis. But I couldn't find anything in the help pages about altering their font. However by changing the labels to names (enclose in left quotes, instead of double quotes) their font could be set using the axesfont option.

Perhaps something could be added to the example mentioned above. In the longer run though, all the help pages for plots need to be re-written: at present they resemble an untidy scrapbook.
