Are you using a UTF-8 locale?  (You know, there are good reasons why the 
posting guide asks for sessionInfo() output.)

If so, the problem is probably with the non-availability of fonts in 
ISO10646 encoding, and you may well find that the R update suggested 
(before posting) in the posting guide will help.  But you may have to run 
R in e.g. en_GB to get satisfactory results from an old version of R on an 
old OS.
