Thanks to you all for your quick replies!
I work under Windows98 and I am still using version 1.3.1. The output file
is in postscript or eps format.

Henrik Bengtssons tip
>plot(1:10, xlab="\344\366\374")

solved the problem, for I call the program in Rterm.
A special thank-you to Henrik for his useful functions.
