To use grid graphics with lattice, the help for gpar indicates that
any number of named arguments can be specified but where do we find
what names make any sense?

I have ascertained that fontsize is given in points such as one
would use in a postscript device argument and uses that same name.
It's not as I'd have thought, something corresponding to cex in
regular par() settings.  Evidently there is a good reason for that,
but what I'd like to know is how do I set the font to italic?  And in
general, is there a listing of what possible names can be set by

Thanks for ideas on where to look in the docs.
