I searched for better methods and found a thread where I had
demonstrated some success, but the code was rather convolute. Others
had more compact solutions. Try this modification of one offered by
Grothendieck:
x=c(summary(lm.D90)$r.squared, summary(lm.D90)$r.squared-1)
plot(0)
ix <- as.double(1:3)
legend("top", as.expression(lapply(ix, function(i) bquote(data~set~.
(i)~R^2==.(x[i])))))
