Dear Marion,

I can only guess, as you did not provide much information as to what
exactly you are using, but...



in the header. Then you can include the eps graphic via


The width and height I am giving here are just starting points, you will
have to choose. \linewidth is, roughly spoken, the current with a line of
text would have at that point. \textheight is the total height of the text
part of the page. You can't use all of it because the graphic's caption and
maybe other things will take room too. For other switches please consult
'texdoc grfguide' (if I remember correctly), that's the documentation to
the graphics bundle.

Hope that helps,
