Sure.

xyplot(mpg ~ disp | factor(cyl) * HP, mtcars,

```       par.strip.text = list(lines = 0.5),
strip = function(which.given, which.panel, ...) {
if (which.given == 1)
strip.default(which.given = 1,
which.panel = which.panel[which.given],
...)
},
par.settings =
list(layout.heights =
list(strip = rep(c(0, 1), c(5, 1)))))

```
