Hi a quick question:

- how do I write a label like this:

ylabel("$\sigma_{\rm{R}} / \sigma_e$")

to have: sigma_R / sigma_e with the R in \rm mode ?

At the moment it does not seem to work..

thanks for any help there.

[Is there any exhaustive list of what we can do in latex-like mode ?
I am for example looking for different ways to include ''spaces'']
