Subject: R-beta: errors in R help docs

The online help in R has errors concerning mai and mar.

 mai: A numerical vector of the form `c(xb, xt, yl, yr)'
  which gives the margin size specified in inches.

 mar: A numerical vector of the form `c(xb, xt, yl, yr)'
  which gives the lines of margin to be specified on
  the four sides of the plot.  The default is `c(5,4, 4, 2) + 0.1'.

This would be bad if it were true, since it is different from S-Plus.
However after testing I find that these actually work the same as S-Plus,
so the help should say:

 mai: A numerical vector of the form `c(xb, yl, xt, yr)'
  which gives the margin size specified in inches.

 mar: A numerical vector of the form `c(xb, yl, xt, yr)'
  which gives the lines of margin to be specified on
  the four sides of the plot.  The default is `c(5,4, 4, 2) + 0.1'.
