# [R] Coloring Stripchart Points, or Better, Lattice Equivalent

```Below is a revised set of code that demonstrates my question a little more
clearly, I hope.

When plotting all the data (5th panel), col & sym don't seem to be passed
correctly, as the (random) first value for col & sym are used for all points
(run the code, then run it again, you'll see how the 5th panel changes
depending upon col & sym for the first data point).  The 5th panel should
ideally be the "sum" of the 4 panels above, keeping col & sym intact.

Also, I would rather have this in lattice or ggplot2, if anyone sees how to
convert it.

Thanks once again, several of you have made very useful suggestions off
list.  Bryan
