[R] Lattice: reversing order of panel placement in conditional histograms

Hi R-people,

I have a question about lattice in general, and histogram specfically. How do you control the ordering of factors that controls the placement of the conditional panels. I have a dataset with factors that go 'Q1','Q2',"Q3','Q5' and of course I want the plot to place Question Q1 at the top and Question Q5 at the bottom of the graphical output. histogram() does the opposite as 5 is larger than 1. Similarly my 'AlertFormat' factor is a textual category, and I need the data to read from left to right (representing old to new) , with 'New A & V' on the right, and 'Pre-existing A & V' on the left, which is the opposite to how histogram plots.

The current lattice output from what's below is here:- http://www.arch.usyd.edu.au/~sfer9710/latticeoutput.pdf

All I really want to do is reverse the placement entirely from what I have received above.

I've checked the help to no avail, and have looked through the r-help archive. I love lattice, but always have problems of this nature. I hope someone can help me solve them.

Thanks heaps
-- Sam
