Ben,

This example of pgfSweave looks like it would address my problem. I installed this package, but I cannot determine how to use it to make R convert LaTeX commands into mathematical symbols on an R plot. The documentation does not seem to address this. I tried to mimic the example from Yihui Xie that you provided but R only puts the LaTeX code on my plot without converting it. That is, if in the R GUI I have:

*> library(pgfSweave)
**> plot(1:10, 1:10, "$Y=\\beta_0 + \\beta_1 x + \\epsilon$")
*
