Then you can regenerate the factor by
common.without.Method4 <- subset(common, Method!=4)
common.without.Method4 <- transform(common.without.Method4,
Method = factor(Method))

drawn using lattice's xyplot
Thank you for your suggestion. Unfortunately it does not appear to
matter if
the data is subsetted before the xyplot command or within it. The
problem
remains.
I was able to remove method 4 entirely from the key by using your
suggestion
to subset the dataset "common," and then creating a new variable to
assign
labels for just this subset "common.without.Method4$method.not4.f" The
resulting code was:
xyplot(MeanBxg ~ PercentVarExplained | bdg.f * bdx.f,
data=common.without.Method4, groups=method.not4.f, type="l",
auto.key=T)
This however leads to lack of continuity between plots, as when I
exclude
methods 4 and 6 in my second plot, using the same approach, the color
that
had corresponds to methods 7, 8 and 9 in plot one is automatically
changed
in plot two. The subsetting may work, so long as I can dictate line
color
and symbol type in each plot.
