Hi Maura,

Compound quotes can become an absolute nightmare (in any language).

R already has Tcl/TK packages, check out the following from CRAN...

ade4TKGUI
gWidgetstcltk
plotAndPlayGTK *
RGtk2

Also you might find some of the packages listed at the Graphics Task View of use (http://cran.r-project.org/web/views/Graphics.html), perhaps something under the Dynamic Graphics section?

Personally if I wanted fancy graphics for a presentation I'd go down the line of LaTeX to produce nice PDF's which can have nice grahpics and "pop up's". LaTeX is well supported in R via the Sweave suite and various other packages such as xtable() and the latex functions in Hmisc() and many other packages.

Sorry I've not provided any direct solution,

Neil
