[R] lattice: how to format axis labels?

Dear r-help,

  I draw graphics with xyplot() function.
  Labels on the y axis are appearing as follows: "1.5, 1, 0.5, 0"

  I'd like to have them to be "1.5, 1.0, 0.5, 0.0", i.e. with fixed
  number of digits after the dot (one in this case).

  Is there any way to do this without implicit specifying labels?
  And some questions about font.
  Unfortunately I cannot find in the documentation how to make the
  axis labels bold.

  What's the difference between fonts 1, 2, 3 and 4?
  I have tried them all (trellis.par.set("par.xlab.text",list(font=4));),
  but haven't seen any difference.

  I use R 1.7.1 on WindowsNT.

  Thank you!
Best regards
