Dear R-users,
I have two problems:
1) In producing mathematical notation in plots I can not produce the
italic version of greek symbols. That is
gives the same as
Is this a bug or a specifity of my machine (R 0.63.2, Linux 2.0.36,

2) I would like to add x and ylabels in boxplots. Is there a way to
do this? I tried:
    bxp(bpdata, xlab="Size Classes", ylab="Cash Flow")

1)  this is a "feature";  the only available fonts at present are plain,
bold, italic, bolditalic, and symbol.

2) mtext() should do what you want.

hope this helps ...
