This is what I used.... I don't know if I did everything the "proper" way but
at least I got the result I was seeking! :)
trellis.par.set(list(layout.heights = list(top.padding = -1)))
trellis.par.set(list(layout.heights = list(bottom.padding = -1,
axis.xlab.padding = 1, xlab = -1.2)))
trellis.par.set(list(layout.widths = list(left.padding = -1)))
trellis.par.set(list(layout.widths = list(right.padding = -1,
ylab.axis.padding = -0.5)))
Do these settings make any sense?
