To reorder the y-labels, simply reorder the factor levels:
df <- data.frame(x_label = factor(x_label),
y_label = factor(y_label, rev(y_label)),
values = as.vector(my.data))
Not sure about putting the strips at the bottom. A quick scan of
?xyplot and ?strip.default suggests that this is not possible, but I'm
sure Deepayan will correct me if I'm wrong (he often does).
