I am having problem to display text that goes start inside the plot but should go over the margins of the plot.

You can have an example of what I mean by looking at the graphs on this page:
http://ptaff.ca/soleil/?l1pays=Canada&l1etat=Qu%C3%A9bec&l1ville=Montr%C3%A9al&year=2007&month=12&day=30&l1cityname=Montr%C3%A9al%2C+Qu%C3%A9bec%2C+Canada&l1ltd=45&l1ltm=30&l1lts=0&l1ltx=N&l1lgd=73&l1lgm=34&l1lgs=47&l1lgx=W&l1tz=-5.0&l1dst=US&l2ltx=N&l2lgx=E&l2tz=0&lang=en_CA&go=Voir+le+graphe%21 or

The sunset and sunlight values near the bullets should be displayed but they are truncated in the middle.

For what I understand, the "text" method is used to write inside the plot area while the "mtext" is used to write in the margins, i.e. outsite the plot.

Is there a way to start writing in the plot area and to indicate that if the strings goes outside the area, it can continue to write there?
