Dear R Helpers:

I am trying to annotate a plot.  The following code snippet works, but it is
kind of a kludge since it adds the partial derivative symbols after creating
the plotmath frac().  Is there a more elegant way to write a partial

plot(NA, xlim=c(-3,3), ylim=c(0,1.6), xlab="", ylab="", tck=-0.015)

text(1.6, 1, expression(paste("slope = ", frac(paste("   f( ",  hat(theta),
" )"), hat(theta))), sep=""), adj=0)

text(2.25, 1.03, "\\pd", vfont=c("sans serif","plain"))

text(2.3, 0.934, "\\pd", vfont=c("sans serif","plain"))
