Subject: R-beta: plot annotation

I have a bunch of curves on a plot and I would like to label each curve.
Currently, if I place the text right on the curve it is hard to read
because the text and the curve overlap.  I would like to make a label
on an opaque white box just slightly larger than the label, and this sits
on top of the curve. (This is easy to do in drawing programs on the Mac)

If I have the label ||
and the line ----------------
I want the result to look like
not like

Is there any way to do this in R?

Thanks very much for any help.
