# [Xy-pic] inline xymatrix

Dear xypic users,

I wish to use xypic inline, that is, in a running text line.

... let $X \stackrel{f}{\to} Y$ be a function ...

one uses

... let $\xymatrix at 1{ X \ar^-{f}[r] & Y }$ be a function ...

there is a noticably ugly vertical gap above that line, whereas the
labels are typeset in the same size as the stackrel.
How does one prevent this?

Best wishes,
Chris Heunen
