I would be real interested in knowing what Los Alamos thinks is a "better
graphics program" for dealing with combining vector and bitmap art. I
suspect they are thinking of UNIX programs that can't handle fonts
decently. But I have had the same complaint around here, so any helpful
pointers on other programs they like would be worth following up.
