         I am preparing to release a Windows-based graphics program for 
producing figures in TeX documents. I use three \specials:
         \special{em:linewidth xxpt}, \special{em:moveto} and 
\special{em:lineto}. These are supported by emTeX, Y & Y TeX, and dvips. 
Are there other dvi readers/printer drivers that support these \specials? 
Are there equivalent macros? Is there a systematic way to find 
documentation on this issue?

Best Regards,
