Just out of curiosity, what's wrong with

xyplot(y1 + y2 ~ x | interaction(g, h, sep = "-"), data = DF, type = "l", auto.key = TRUE)

? Not having to do the other sort of callisthenics is the whole point of having strips.

I should point out a subtle effect here (even hinted at in the documentation, miraculously), which can be seen with

> xyplot(y1 + y2 ~ x | g * h, data=DF,

+ panel = function(x, y, ..., subscripts) print(subscripts) )

[1]  1  3  5 13 15 17
[1]  7  9 11 19 21 23
[1]  2  4  6 14 16 18
[1]  8 10 12 20 22 24

Note that the last three values of 'subscripts' in each panel is 12 + i, where i is the true subscript (DF has only 12 rows). This is a consequence of the fact that DF is internally 'reshape()'d. Gabor's solution avoids this by using subscripts[1] in each panel (and also because 'x' and 'y' are not recycled to be as long as the labels in grid.text), but it's something to be generally aware of.
