[R] Sans Serif Fonts?

Hi All, 

I am preparing a few plots for publication.  Unfortunately the journal
requires figures to have all text in a sans serif fonts.

I realise that there is support for the use of Hershey vector fonts in the
function TEXT, 
but how do I get the text on axes to be sans serif?
For example, the labels and axis values produced from this line of code:

plot(SolPC, SorbPC, ylab="Sorbed P (mg/kg)",cex.lab=1.3,xlab="Solution P
(mg/L)", tcl=0.3,mgp=c(2,1,0),axes=FALSE, xlim=c(0,35), ylim=c(0,100))

Is the only way to tackle the problem to leave the plot bare of numbers and
labels, then put them in with manual text commands?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
