Dear Will,

Thanks a lot, I tried your suggestion, i.e. I used res@gsnRightString =
"units: " + "Wm~S~-2~N~sr~S~-1~N~" + "~F8~m~N~" + "m~S~-1~N~",
but I still got Wm-2sr-1 -1
and what I want is Wm-2sr-1 m-1

It really drive me crazy. I just do not know why it always give me not m.
Any more good ideas? Thanks a lot.

Best,
Yi
