True, but the following commands fails:
plot(1:10,ylab="temperature expression(delta*t)")
plot(1:10,ylab="temperature" expression(delta*t))
Error: syntax error, unexpected SYMBOL, expecting ',' in
"plot(1:10,ylab="temperature" expression"
So I want to be able to have 'δt' and 'temperature δt' as a y-axis label.
