[XeTeX] Four Initial - General Problems with files

Hello Ross and thank you very much for your answers.

They should work, but probably something is wrong with my system. ps2eps 
failed and therefore I was not able to reproduce your output but I am sure it 
will work.

I had tried to use pdfpages to import the graphs as pdf but does not 
co-operate well with xelatex.

Finally I found that I can import the pdf file in GIMP and then save the 
graphs as eps (to be included as graph in the tex file).

But I need some rest before I solve the ps2eps problem since your solution is 
general and robust. 

Best Regards
