I can get the types to work or the colors but not both:

panel = function(x, y, subscripts, groups, ...)

panel.superpose.2(x, y, subscripts, groups, col = cols[subscripts], ...) )

# this gets the colors right but not the types library(lattice)
x <- 1:10
y <- cbind(y1 = x, y2 = x+1)
cols <- c(rep(1,10), 1:10)
xyplot(y ~ c(x,x), groups = col(y), type = c("o", "p"),

panel = function(x, y, subscripts, groups, ...)

panel.xyplot(x, y, col = cols[subscripts], ...) )
