[R-SIG-Mac] differences between quartz and pdf

I have never made anything to change the fonts used in quartz and pdf
devices, so I assume my settings are like everyone else.
I was trying to position text carefully on a graph within a function.
However the result was different when I plotted to a quartz device
than to a pdf device.
My function used par("cxy") to compute where to place text. This is
indeed part of the problem as calling it when a quartz device is open
yields (0.1928571, 0.3857143), whereas for a pdf device I get
Is there a way to set R so that when no font size or family is
specified, the same font/size is used by both the pdf and quartz
For now I've written 2 versions of my function depending on which
device I want to output to, which is not a great solution.
Thanks in advance,
