I finally got everything plotted as I had planned. So, thank you again. Sundars suggestion looks more flexible when it comes to large numbers of categories (i.e. sigmas). In the plot I will be using, there are 3 sigmas... I am keen to learn about that bquote and substitute stuff. I will definitely take a look at your newsletter contribution, uwe. The ';'s were intended to ease the mail2console copy-and-paste, as some mail programs take control of your linebreaks. Mario.
