Minor details on plots

Hi all,

I'm sending this message to both the ncl an dpyngl lists in case you receive
this twice. I have a few minor detail oriented questions on plot resources
which I assume exist in both ncl and pyngl. So an answer from either group
will do.

It never ceases to amaze me that you can summarize a fifty year data set and
generate 20 plots in a half hour but it's all too easy to waste 4 hours
trying to figure out how to change a font size or some other such preference.
Anyway, here goes...

1. Is there a way to use italics or oblique fonts? I use Helvetica for almost
everything but I don't see any way to emphasize text by italicizing it.

2. With the gsn_csm_* templates, can I easily turn the tick marks inward?

3. If I can do number 2 above, is there a way to introduce a small amount of
space between the axis box and the data that is contoured or plotted? There
is an example of what I'm talking about attached.

Thanks much!
