Hi Folks,
I am using R 2.5.1 on a Mac OS X 10.4.9, via ESS.

I would like to try to get an italic mu onto a plot axis label. I  
note that in a previous email,

"There is no italic symbol font available on most devices. So unless you
try to plot Greek (not math symbol Greek) you are out of luck. "

How does one plot Greek, or is there now another solution?
