[R] double-axis labels function of each other

Hi Hurr,
The problem is with the quotes in xlab="". In your version the quotes are
not ASCII double quotes but some sort of "smart" quotes. Either your email
client has substituted them or more likely, you are editing your code in
something like MS Word and cutting and pasting the result into R. Try just
typing this in R:
plot(x1,x2,type="l",xlab="")
and the first error should not appear. The error with "mtext" is the same
problem. The reason that the x axis label is in the wrong place is that it
is not suppressed in the initial plot.
