Dear colleagues,

Thank you, I've already realized that...

Is is possible to place the legend outside a plot in any other way
except using lattice package?

BTW, maybe it would be useful to place this question in FAQ?
I've searched the mail archive. The question about placing the legend
outside a plot already have arose...
