[R] puzzled with plotmath

Dear all,
I'm puzzled with matrix indices in plotmath.
I'm plotting matrix elements: Z [i, i], and I'd like to put that as label. I'll
describe what I want and what I get in LaTeX-notation.
The output should look like Z_{i, i}, and my first try was
plot (1, 1, ylab = expression (Z[i, i]))
That, however, gives me Z_{i} (no comma, no second i) although the expression
looks OK to me:
> a <- expression (Z[i, i])
> a [[1]]
Z[i, i]
> str (as.list (a [[1]]))
List of 4
$ : symbol [
$ : symbol Z
$ : symbol i
$ : symbol i
I'm able to tweak the ouput looking as I want:
plot (1, 1, ylab = expression (Z[i][", "][i]))
which is, however, logically very far from what I want to express.
What am I missing?
I'm almost sure this has been discussed before, but I can't find it: can anyone
point me to good search terms? Is it possible to search for the terms being
close to each other in RSiteSearch and/or RSeek? I get lots of introductory
documents as they point to plotmath and discuss matrices...
Thanks a lot for your help,
Claudia
