   Did you look at the examples in the file suggested by Simon?
Unfortunately, the PS file but not the JPG came through in the
version I read.

  It seems to me you may want _node_ labels rather
than _edge_ labels?    See below ...

mytreeABC = "((A:45.15,C:45.15):46.19,B:91.34):0.0;"
t1 = read.tree(text=mytreeABC)
