ltext/panel.text plots text *within* panels; IIUC, the  OP requested
text outside the plots. For that see the details for "main" and/or
"sub" in ?xyplot. I think it could also be done more flexibly via a
legend or a key with a title but no content -- again, see the Help
page -- but haven't tried it.
