This is adapted from partha_bagchi@hgsi.com 's report on R-help:
plot(0); title(expression("Bad\n with much much more text")))
gives something like
Bad
with much much more text
(``newline w/o carriage return'') instead of centering both lines such as
Bad
with much much more text
which is produced by (just dropping `expression' from the above)
plot(0); title(("Bad\n with much much more text"))
By the way, the following would need even more attention if one insists on
correct behavior:
plot(0)
title(expression(paste("Still works with math\n", "with",
frac(1,sum(x[i], i==1,n)), " and more text")))
