[tex-eplain] Text Overlay on Graphics

A few years ago, when I searched for an answer to this
problem and came up empty (due to the fact that packages
like pstricks depended on postprocessing and were not
portable), I gave up and adopted Metapost instead.

If you look at this (enormous and slow to load) page


you will find some examples of graphs near the bottom, along
with their source code.  Over the past few years, I have not
found a more robust graphics tool than Metapost.

... regarding a message from Jelena i Zoran on Jul 12:
> Hello,
