Oh, okay.  You're welcome.  As for why
   relabel(3 " " 6 " " 9 " ")
as a suboption of over() doesn't work, I have no idea.  I agree it
seems like it should, or the reason why it doesn't should be included
at the relevant spot the help file. There are other examples of this,
I believe, in other parts of the -graph- suite of commands, though
none occur to me at the moment.  The use of characters that "look
like" spaces where spaces don't work is a handy trick, in several
contexts--maybe there should be a FAQ (an FAQ?) on special characters
and their uses...  calling Nick Cox...
