There is nothing to solve! Did you try the obvious: enter the characters
from your keyboard in the xlab and ylab strings? It should work, and
there are examples in ?text.
If this perchance does not work, please tell us a lot more details about
your system. (It works even in English-language versions of Windows
95, 98, NT4, 2000 and XP to my knowledge.)
