The key() options of the -graph- command give you some limited ability
to create a legend for the graph.

There are various user-written programs that let you add text to a
graph, which is probably more what you want.  My -textgph- is one
example, I don't think I've submitted it to SSC, but I am doing so now,
so it will be available shortly.

-textgph- basically creates a twoway graph, and includes an option that
lets you specify strings of text you would like on the graph; the
location for the strings is specified in terms of the x and y
coordinates of the data in the graph.
