I don't know what psfrag is, but if it only allows simply strings in 
Courier, then we want MUCH more than that. You see we want to put 
mathematics in the labels using the TeX fonts themselves. We could 
easily put Courier labels on the graphics with Illustrator -- the 
problem arises when we want to include TeX fonts. Our procedure seems 
to fix this problem.
