Subject   st: scatterplot with points labeled with names of variables?

I want to try producing overlaid scatterplots, in which each overlaid
graph is a scatterplot of two variables, using data from just one
observation.  In otherwords, each individual scatterplot would consist
of just one point.  Since I have 8 variables, graphing them in pairs
would produce 4 individual scatterplots which, when overlaid, would
produce a graph with just 4 points, representing data from just one
observation.

Each variable is measured on the same -10 to +10 scale.

The axes would have to be blank, since for each visible point, the axes
would be of two different variables.

I would like to label each point with the two variables that generated
it, like this (using X as the msymbol)

          X (var1,var2)

                      X (var3,var4)


      X (var5,var6)

I was able to produce the graphs just fine, but I don't know if there is
a way to make the variable names appear in pairs as labels for the
points.  Any ideas?

Thanks.
