[R] problem with fonts

Dear all:

I have two problems with fonts:

1. Some symbols, such \sum, \prod, etc., are not displayed on the R X11 graphic 
window. But, the postsript device displays the fonts correctly. I have two 
symbol fonts installed. -urw-symbol and -adobe-symbol. Removing -urw-symbol 
solves the problem. It looks like -urw-symbol is used by defult. How do I get 
the symbols displayed when -urw-symbol font is installed?

2. How can display letters in ISO8859-9 (latin-5), that is Turkish, encoding. 
Some of the Turkish letters,  such as \:o, \:u,  are displayed, but others, 
such as \v{g}, \c{s}, \i{}, are not displayed. Changing locale settings to 
turkish does not solve the problem. Hershey fonts do not help either. How can I 
get theser letters displayed?

I am using R 1.5 on Mandrake 8.2.
