I very much appreciate any help on this "fine tuning" problem in a lattice
graph (I am new to LATTICE and could not find an example in the help files
that worked for me. My apologies if I missed it there).

I am running the following box plots to compare conditional distributions of
x at different levels of y under two treatment conditions ID=1 (upper
panel ) & ID=0 (lower panel of the plot).

bwplot(HF.ELECYEAR ~ stparvotech | ID ,
	data=data, aspect=1,
            xlab="Changes in Party Vote Shares",
            ylab="Periods Following Last Federal Election",
            main="Divided Government",
	panel = function(x,y)
		panel.abline(v=0, col="red")

How can I:
1. Control the font size of the main title, the panel titles, the axis, and
the tick marks? The usual cex.main=1/3, cex.xlab etc. do not work.
2. Change the color of the boxes where the panel titles (ID=1 & ID=0) are

Thank you very much.
