	  The documentation "?mtext" says that "adj" is "adjustment for each 
string in reading direction. For strings parallel to the axes, 'adj=0' 
means left or bottom alignment, and 'adj=1' means right or top 
alignment."  With this information, I tried the following, which looks 
like it may be close to what you are requesting:

       adj=c(0, .5, 1), col=c("black","blue","red"), side=3, line=0)
