There is nothing to solve!  Did you try the obvious: enter the characters
from your keyboard in the xlab and ylab strings?   It should work, and
there are examples in ?text.

If this perchance does not work, please tell us a lot more details about
your system.  (It works even in English-language versions of Windows
95, 98, NT4, 2000 and XP to my knowledge.)
