Under Unix, you should be able to plot on X11 or postscript devices any
characters in the ISO latin1 character set: see ?text for some examples.
You may need to set the locale correctly before launching R.

On Windows, ditto for NT, but there are known problems with 95/98/ME that
we think we have addressed for the next release.

I assume you want Czech chars, and you will have to tell us if they are in
ISO latin1, I am afraid.
