[R] display double dot over character in plotmath?

Hi,
The following simple solution gives appropriate results in base R (and
should work with any base character):
plot(rnorm(100), rnorm(100), main = expression(paste(omega, "\u0308")))
In your ggplot example, something like:
ggplot(data, aes(x=X)) + geom_line(aes(y = Z), size=0.43) + xlab
(expression(atop(top, bold(Age~paste(omega,"\u0308")))))
seems to produce what you need (AFAICT).
Note that, contrary to Robert's examples, one has to put
the corresponding diacritic AFTER the base character in unicode
conventions. Also, one needs to put the omega and "\u0308" within a
paste() function in order to concatenate them correctly and to reach a
state in which they "combine" together.
Inserting this into your own code, the characters are not bold though
and I'm not sure what the solution would be. This may be an issue with
the font that is used. Also note that in order to export the graph to
pdf, you'd need to use cairo_pdf() in order to get the character
displayed correctly.
Olivier.
