Thank you for this, infact I have just discovered that adj is much more 
predictable and does what  I want.
I still remain surprised that when I rotate some text 180 degrees I do 
not get an upside down version of  the unrotated text relative to the 
point. As the reasons for this are clear to Prof. Ripley and yourself, 
it just demonstrates my ignorance of R.
