I guess you're new to posting too: you wlil need to be clearer.

First of all, whicg version of RevTeX and which sub-package (aps, osa,...)?

This example does NOT have "angle=90" so it doesn't help - "angle=90"
certainly works for me under RevTeX4 with the "aps" option.

Just where does 1.23 appear as 1~23, in hte figures themselves, in the text
...?

Do you also have \bibliography{mybib}, where mybib.bib is your bib file?
Have you run BibTeX.  Have you read the rather short manual on BibTeX?
