An alternative is to use the my.symbols function from the TeachingDemos package (improvements are welcome).

Subject: [R] Windows OS, R and unicode
I'm trying to use the biological female and male signs in R2.5.1 under
Windows XP. I can access and insert these symbols using word-processors.
In general these should be available as \u2640 and \u2642 but I can't
make them happen in R using (say) text(5,5, "\u2640") message "invalid
I've replaced Arial with Arial unicode MS in Rdevga and I've tried
various setlocale options with no success (the Murrell/Ripley examples
(Rnews 6/2) do work of course ... so I feel I should be able to do this
myself, but after several hours it is time to ask for help).
I understand from Google results that users on Mac OS and Linux aren't
facing this problem ...
